"It’s not impossible to think that an edtech behemoth of the same power and scale of two of the world’s most successful tech brands will soon emerge from this space."
I really believe Sara.AI will become one of these edtech behemoths if I can get it off the drawing board. One reason is that selling to schools is not in my revenue model. Below are four quotes from the article and rang true with my vision.
**Selling educational software to schools, rather than the actual technology is what often consigns many edtech ventures to the dustbin.
**Technology can and must be mobilized to make the process more efficient and engaging.
**Transformative innovations are being deployed by way of edtech apps that give teachers access to valuable real-time data and insight into the classroom.
**Complementing rather than replacing traditional pedagogy — fueled by the proliferation of mobile devices — creates the very tools needed to achieve this.
We’re entering a new era in edtech; now has never been a more opportune time to take advantage of this space.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
