Massive Gaps in EdTech - Are India's EdTech entrepreneurs targeting drops or the ocean?

“EdTech” has become a buzzword among startups, with companies like BYJU's launching to incredible success. But tech is not the reality of the majority of India. Though market penetration of mobile phones is on a rise, using technology for education requires far more than just access to a piece of tech. The speakers will tackle some of the largest inhibitors to EedTtech throughout the Indian education system––from the privileged students in Tier 1 cities, all the way to the rural schools in places like Rajasthan. Just because it's tech-enabled, do students actually learn? Further, BECAUSE it's tech, does that leave out the majority of India and those who need it most?

Reality Check for startups: Hear from on- ground educators on what they really need entrepreneurs to solve?

Regardless of sector, every entrepreneur is obsessed with their product so much that it's hard for them to step out of their head and actually understand problems from their customer's point of view. This session serves as a reality check for our EdTech entrepreneurs. Hear from on-the-ground educators talk about some of the biggest problems they are facing, and how the startup community might be able to step up its game and solve India's educators' most pressing problems.

Sell Sell Sell! - Cracking sales with education Institutions & Consumers

Sales in education is one of the most difficult problems to crack. From institution sales cycles, governmental organizations, educators and parents, it's essential to know which players are the decision makers with deep pockets, and how to best convince them to give your company a try. While access to users is important, EedTtech entrepreneurs must be able to deeply understand their buyers as well as their users.
