Date

August 29, 2017

India is a country today with 65% of its youth in the working age group. Quality education is a must for the development of this large youth reserve to become a large talent pool. Unfortunately, the current education system is in crisis and fundamental policy interventions are needed. New education enterprises and technology platforms are emerging and have started to disrupt the education system, but more are needed if we are to achieve larger scale.

How do we foster the development of more education enterprises? How can we build an ecosystem that helps to address the challenges facing education enterpreneurs including accessing and managing financial resources, scaling and growth, and measuring outcomes and impact?

AVPN members, Deshpande Foundation and Village Capital, shared on how they are training and incubating more education enterprises.

The webinar focused on:

  • Skill based education and the role it plays in creating leaders with the entrepreneur spirit
  • Role of social investing in building sustainable and scalable enterprises in Education
  • Innovative strategies and models for investors to be able to better communicate their needs and identify ventures to invest in
