“The B2C market is already being disrupted across K-12 and Upskilling professional courses. The B2B growth has been slower and will require more pioneering ideas to tackle challenges of poor demand and market fragmentation. About 390 million Indians access the internet monthly with an average mobile data consumption of 8GB per subscriber per month. This has enabled education entrepreneurs to build affordable high quality scalable solutions eg. live interactive teaching models that connects students with star teachers coupled with AI-powered platform to support students individually. These teachers are otherwise not easily accessible to everyone and often students migrate from their homes to other cities or towns. In the online environment teachers use interactive pedagogy to teach a large class and further personalize learning for individual students.“
