Regional expansion began in March of 2015, since that time EdTech Asia has formed similar groups in 10 countries and 13 cities. Additionally, EdTech Asia has organized or contributed to 20+ events in the last 12 months with new groups and events scheduled for India and China in 2016. Community groups are scheduled to meet twice per year and serve as a local focal point for access and ecosystem growth through the facilitation of a collaborative and cohesive network of groups throughout the region. The EdTech Asia Summit represents the next stage of growth.
