Wary investors steer clear of startups in education sector | Times of India

Wary investors steer clear of startups in education sector | Times of India | International School Education | Scoop.it

A combination of slow growth, regulatory hurdles and rare exits in the education sector in India has hurt investor confidence, making life difficult for entrepreneurs who are starved of funds to scale up operations.


"We stopped looking for investments last month," said Aditya Kulkarni, cofounder of Learning Outcomes, a Bangalorebased venture that develops assessment tools for schools and expects to earn revenue of Rs 50 lakh this fiscal.

Kulkarni, a graduate of the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore, approached about half a dozen investors who wanted to see more evidence of growth before putting their money. The 20-month-old startup had about 8,000 customers, but the venture funds demanded at least 30,000. The 26-year-old entrepreneur has now decided to shelve fundraising plans and is focusing on gaining customers. This month alone, Kulkarni's company acquired 2,000 clients.

Such wariness from investors is mostly due to a paucity of exits, the only noteworthy one being the buyout of online education company TutorVista by the UK's Pearson group in 2011.

Since then, risk-capital funding for the sector has declined, this year investments totalled $13 million (Rs 80.5 crore) a drop of 83% from the previous year, according to research firm Venture Intelligence.

"We've stayed away from the space," said Sanjay Swamy, managing partner at Angel Prime, an early-stage incubator that has backed ventures such as payment solutions maker Ezetap.

To de-risk their portfolio, investors are insisting on working prototypes and higher number of customers before jumping on board. This refusal to fork out seed money is hurting their prospects, say entrepreneurs.

I think it's interesting that Indias schooling is very slow. You think that because they have so many people the schooling would be more developed
