To get you up to speed for the week ahead, we will serve you a Monday Ristretto here on EDUKWEST from now on. We pick the most important reads from the past week, put them in a grinder and extract the essential information in a short and punchy brew.
Today we’ve got three shots for you. It’s all about MOOC management, investments in Indian edtech startups and European edtech initiatives.
This week Chris and I talk edtech news and investment with Dublin-based investor Alan Maguire from Versari Partners.
As always we start the show with our newsflash and give you an overview of this week’s funding stories and other news we think are of interest to have a closer look at. You find all the links to the stories at the end of this post.
Skyfi Labs, a Bangalore-based edtech startup targeting engineering students with products and services, raised an undisclosed amount from Spark Capital and Chennai Angels.
The funding will be used to expand the service to over 1,000 new colleges, increase and refine the course offerings and enhance back-end technology.
