Making Education Work

 

We're joined by Umang Jain, Co-Founder of StudyPad (makers of Splash Learn), a company of "hard-working and slightly nerdy people who are passionate to change the way an entire generation of kids learn".

 

Umang started his journey as an EdTech entrepreneur almost a decade back, and having scaled up SplashLearn from being a Math-focused learning product for kids in the US, to now expanding to other geographies, new subject matter and broader age groups, he has had a front row seat of how technology is and can transform the world of Education and Pedagogy. 

 

He reflects on the Indian EdTech ecosystem with its homegrown challenges, differentiates between Education-led and Entertainment with a "dash of education" models, and shares his philosophy on the role of wider stakeholders, be it schools, teachers, and parents in refining how we see and perceive Learning as a whole.

 

All in all a super interesting chat to understand the Education value chain, the growth levers at play, and the innovations which future EdTech entrepreneurs should watch out for.
