What is Edtech?
Education Technology (EdTech) covers a wide spectrum of software, hardware and digital solutions that help deliver and manage learning in a more effective and efficient way, from early childhood education to corporate and lifelong learning. With recent advancements in mobile technologies, AI, data analytics, reality technologies, Internet of Things, robotics etc, EdTech will play an increasingly important role in enabling, motivating, empowering, customizing and democratising learning.
Do Good and Do Well with Edtech Ventures
The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation in the education sector. Investors are warming up to the opportunities in the edtech market. HolonIQ, a leading global edtech intelligence platform, expects the global education and training market to reach USD7.3 trillion in total expenditures by 2025. China made up 52% of the last decade's edtech VC funding, followed by the US at 33%.
The allure of edtech investment should not stop with mainstream investors looking for financial returns. Impact investing is experiencing phenomenal growth, driven to a large degree by the increasing number of investors who want their investments to align with their personal values, particularly millennials who want their investments portfolios to be a statement of who they are and what they stand for.
Greentech represents a significant portion of impact investors' portfolio, but edtech is so far an largely unexplored territory. With edtech's potential for delivering market rate returns as well as creating enormous social value by transforming our outdated education system, visionaries in this field are beginning to look into the opportunities in this field.
