English is not “the language” for most people across India due to the diversity. However, EdTech companies must provide quality education to students in T2 and T3 cities as well. While startups are offering “English” learning and skilling solutions to empower such segments through enormous platforms delivering fantastic learning outcomes, it is required that resources and tools are made available to such segments in their preferred languages to ensure quality and effective teaching and learning.

Due to the sheer language diversity in India, EdTechs choose the most common languages to offer their products and services. This has caused the non-metro Indian EdTech markets (T3 cities and beyond where the local language is preferred due to the language proficiency lack) to be left out and lag behind despite the digital revolution and the 2020-2021 EdTech revolution.

To debate on this topic, EdTechReview, in association with AWS EdStart, is organizing a webinar on ‘Indian EdTech – open for vernacular play’ on 13 August 2021 at 1600 hrs IST.

The speakers for the webinar include Saraswathy Ramamoorthy, co-founder, Learning Matters; Gouri Gupta – project director, EdTech, Central Square Foundation; Rahul Maheshwari, investor, Beenext; and Mohammed Hisamuddin, founder and chief executive officer, Entri.app. The session will be moderated by Utkarsh Lokesh, editor, EdTechReview.

The speakers will exchange thoughts over India’s non-metro EdTech market; opportunity for startups – “the vernacular in education” play; early movers in this sector; the end user’s demand from the sector and what EdTech startups can do about it; investor feelings about EdTech startups working in this domain; some of the vernacular EdTech products and services; user response to the existing vernacular offerings by EdTechs and much more.

EdTech startup founders, advisors, managers, chief experience officers, budding EdTech entrepreneurs, representatives from incubators, accelerators, investment firms, Govt., higher education institutions, and anyone curious to learn about the Indian vernacular learning industry can attend the webinar.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
