We are excited to announce a series of education and entrepreneurship events taking place across India in April 2015

“We invite pioneering entrepreneurs, seasoned sector experts, and stakeholders from government, academia, and the public sector to join us for critical engagement in the role of the private sector in educating low-income learners.”

The Affordable Learning Summits have two key objectives:

  1. Offer innovative companies solving some of the most pressing education challenges faced by the global emerging economy with opportunities to build empowering relationships throughout the industry.
  2. Catalyzing education-focused entrepreneurship throughout India, while fostering and amplifying local thought leadership and engagement in the affordable learning sector.

The Affordable Learning Summits will be comprised of one Edtech Ideator event, an Edupreneurs Forum and an Investor Demo Day. All events are designed so expert education leaders, influential policymakers, and a variety of other prominent stakeholders can work with the trailblazers at the ground level – the ‘edupreneurs’.

The Summits series registration and application process will take place as follows:
