Newcomers must be agile and creative to find their valuable nugget of innovation that might revolutionize learning, outwit competition, and bring untold riches.
The recent 49% drop in venture investments shows that VCs are now on the hunt for more than just an average learning management tool. They want the product to be, first, a market fit and, second, scalable.

Despite the 90% use of edtech solutions within classrooms, startups are still experiencing hurdles with their product adoption and integration. Compliance with numerous national and international regulatory protocols requires a complete understanding of the education landscape and additional fundraising, with the last being challenging due to intense rivalry.

WHO WE ARE
Due to the large and fast-growing market (market value—$123.40 billion in 2022), high margins, and positive social influence, the edtech market is highly attractive for investors. And the huge number of startups, more than 19K globally, supports this claim.
Currently, the edtech market comprises about $140 billion, expanding annually at a rate of 13.6%. Fueled by an increasing demand for personalized and flexible learning along with the growing adoption of online education, the edtech landscape opens numerous opportunities for startups within such directions as corporate training, adaptive learning technologies, learning management systems, etc.
Getting investments in the edtech arena is influenced by multiple aspects, including market demand, uniqueness in innovation, compliance with education regulations, and the potential of the business model to grow. Yet, with a strategically designed edtech pitch deck and a solid plan for entering the market, this journey will become smoother.
In most cases, we finish the materials in two to three weeks, maximum a month. But it all depends on the number of tasks we tackle at the moment and the complexity of the project itself.
Poor investment narration is the most striking mistake we’ve encountered in edtech pitch decks. The second place goes to the absence of a clear vision and go-to-market strategy and comprehension of the chosen marketplace. And technical jargon burden, along with lack of meaningful market traction, end the list.
Despite a 49% drop in edtech funding, the field is extremely appealing for startups, with the number reaching 8K already. It all leads to an intense rivalry. Plus, adherence to multiple legal standards aggravates the situation, making it challenging for the founders to secure fundraising. Comprehensive strategic planning, a clear value proposition, compliance with all education protocols, and cutting-edge technology ensure companies overcome all the obstacles.
The edtech industry has already welcomed more than 8K startups, with the number growing daily. Driven by technological advancements and a global shift towards digital learning, especially post-COVID-19, the demand for innovative educational solutions has surged. As a result, companies continually need to innovate and adapt to stay relevant and capture their target audience.
