Sharing her views on what the future of the sector holds, Nita Kapoor, Head – India New Ventures, News Corp and CEO, News Corp VCCircle said, “There is a clear link between India’s skill-gap and the funding gap in our education sector. While government outlay on education in percentage to GDP terms is lower than the world average of 4.9%, private investments can take place only when delivery of quality education results in business value creation. There is clearly a scope for disruptive technology to be leveraged by this sector. While investments in e-learning ventures would witness a rebound with the introduction of 4G, areas of liberal arts, sports education, media education and adaptive learning offer interesting investment opportunities. Ventures offering vocational training are ripe for investors to back given the un-employability of our engineering and management graduates.”
