About the Book

Educating a Billion is an insider's take on how edtech companies in India are trying to solve the issues plaguing our education system and trying to deliver quality at scale. It covers the formative days of India's well-known edtech start-ups-BYJU'S, Unacademy, upGrad and Whitehat Jr, among others, and how these companies created products with a promise that made a difference. The growth of these start-ups is synonymous with the growth of venture capitalist led capital deployment in privately held Indian companies (private markets). The book covers Covid-19-induced changes in our educational system which led to the hypergrowth of the edtech ecosystem, a watershed event for digital start-ups globally.

With a unique ringside perspective, Arjun Mohan weighs in on the future of edtech and how technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR) are going to play an important role in the next phase. Above everything else, this book is the story of India's new generation of entrepreneurs and founders-their hopes, their unwavering faith in the face of ambiguity and their rejection of fear. The book is about vision, audacity and optimism that's changing the education system after 200-plus years of slumber.
