Startup List: Mobile Learning India

[Updated: 08/2015]

Mobile learning is a growing sector in education across the globe, but it will have the largest impact in developing countries where mobile Internet outgrows, and often replaces, broadband connections at an increased speed.

In our latest  Startup List: Mobile Learning India we take a closer look at the mobile learning market in India which has the second highest five-year (2010-2015) growth rate with 61.3% according to a worldwide mobile learning comparison conducted by Ambient Insight.

Our Startup List: Mobile Learning India gives you access to 46 edtech startups in the mobile learning space in India. Each entry is carefully researched and covers the following points (when information is publicly available):

  • Company Name, Website
  • Country, City
  • Founding Date, Founders
  • B2C, B2B, Vertical, Type, Age Group, Language
  • Tech
  • Investment, Accelerator
  • User / Download numbers
  • CrunchBase / AngelList / LinkedIn Profile

Key Findings

According to data gathered by EDUKWEST, there have been at least 15 mobile first edtech startups founded in India in the past five years. An additional 30 have added mobile apps to their offering.

The majority of edtech startups are in the K-12, Higher Education and Test Prep verticals, followed by Lifelong Learning and ESL.

  • pre-K, K-12: 16
  • Higher Education: 4
  • K-12 & Higher Education: 5
  • Test Prep: 11
  • Lifelong Learning: 4
  • ESL: 3

Due to the relatively small number of mobile edtech startups, there is not much overlap between the offerings at the moment. Nevertheless, Assessment and Communication show early traction in K-12 and Higher Education while Marketplaces are dominant in the Lifelong Learning and Tutoring verticals.
