Summary

With the unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, numerous industries and markets around the world were forced to hit the reset button. The gap between early adopters of technology and the laggers shrank and the significance of the internet reached a historical high, pushing it into the essential category.

In terms of the number of funding deals and startups funded, fintech, enterprise tech and edtech were the top three sectors in the Indian startup ecosystem in 2020. While the first two are predictable given that they finished on top in 2019 too, the sudden surge in adoption of online learning products and services helped edtech usurp ecommerce from the third spot. In that sense, 2020 was most definitely the year of edtech. Let’s take a deeper look.
