India is home to over 300 Million students, 1.4 Million Schools, and 51,000 colleges. In 2016, the Indian education market was estimated to be a $100 Bn market, with online education set to grow 8x to $1.96 Bn and around 6x to 9.6 Mn users by 2021. These estimates have been bolstered by the events of 2020 with Indian leaning on the internet to continue their education from Home.

As online education is evolving at a phenomenal pace, CNBC-TV18 and Google brought together a panel of eminent EdTech leaders, VCs and Industry experts at the Education Next summit, supported by Startup India.

This high powered summit gave the attendees a sneak peek into emerging trends and changing consumer behaviour that will help you drive user acquisition, improve UI/UX, and gain a deeper understanding of the export market.
