“Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming,” said Richard Branson. This quote by Branson has shown that from education startups to setting a company finally and launching a classroom app requires using the right potential at the right time. “Where there is a will there is always and always way”. One must know how to look for it. It is said that the door is not always open, but sometimes it’s open or the key is on the floor. This implies that one must always be open to learning. It is important that to set up a successful business one picks the key up and turns the lock. The right kind of environment for success is only achieved when a businessperson is always active and not passive.

Education is needed for the better developments of the country around the world. It is going to help people become better citizens who can think and act independently. It helps a person get a better-paid job, and help them decide the difference between good and bad. Education sector in itself shows the importance of hard work and can easily help millions of people to grow and develop. It is likely to make a better society to live in as people will know and respect the rights, laws, and regulations of the nations. “The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives” said Robert M. Hutchins.

“If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.” said Lyndon B. Johnson, Former President of the United States of America. Technology combined with education is going to alter the world. It has huge market and great potential. It is going to alter the life of people in rural and urban areas with innovations.
According to a report it is said that nearly 65.53% population of India reside in a rural area. There exists a deep gap between urban and rural education system. The literacy rate – the rate of people who can read and write, of the urban area and the rural area is greatly different. Education startups can definitely try to fill in the gap by providing facilities and technologies to rural and urban area.
It can easily fill in the gap that exists between teacher and student as well. A Positive teacher and student relationship helps students meet their needs. Teachers offer feedback to students and also support their feelings with love and compassion. Teachers who have the fair idea of their students’ interests and preferences, and also show regard and respect to these differences that exist between students, increase students’ feelings of autonomy and independence.
“A proper education sets people up to grow personally, professionally, and socially. It can awaken joy, curiosity and a deep desire to solve problems and help others. Plus, teaching a student can inspire them to pursue leadership roles and positively impact those around them” said APJ Abdul Kalam.
There are many benefits of education that can broaden a student’s horizons and opportunities. Edtech companies definitely can grow learning.
