"Whether we were ready for it or not, 2020 is now the year of edtech – technology used to move education forward. According to UNESCO, more than 1.4 billion “learners” are stuck at home right now."
"In other words, COVID-19 has essentially pushed edtech’s innovation timeline forward by five or ten years, virtually overnight."
"It would seem that VCs agree with me on that. A recent survey by TechCrunch indicated that some VCs shifted a large part of their focus to edtech in March… and that many of them are on it full time in April."
"I can tell you firsthand that these trends are producing lasting benefits for startups in the edtech space. Over at the Angels & Entrepreneurs Network, we featured an edtech company [Everydae] back in February, long before most Americans were told to stay home."
This company [Everydae] was doing well in its space even then… but in the past few months, their user base has absolutely exploded. In March alone, they saw an 839% uptick in new accounts created; meanwhile, their total page views shot up by 1,923%.
