Market Need

EdTech solutions are unique in the fact that the customer and the end-user are, in most cases, different – the parent or school is generally the decision-maker, while the student is the end-user. Demonstrating a clear link between the EdTech solution and improved academic performance to the parent(s) is crucial.

Measurable Outcome

People like to see tangible positive outcomes when they spend money on an EdTech product. If there isn't a definite positive outcome linked to the solution like better grades, being admitted to elite institutions for higher studies or better job prospects in the future.
