Start-up EDUGILD and Economic Policy Group (EPG) London have agreed on a joint effort to intensify their cooperation on scaling up Edtech startups from India to Europe. This platform will not only formalise regular discussions between EDUGILD and EPG on the design and implementation of start-up programmes in both countries, it will also strengthen their scaling up support. They can now benefit from jointly developed business opportunities, investor relations, and information-sharing on operational and knowledge activities relevant for the ecosystem.
A statement issued by EDUGILD here on Thursday stated that, one of the collaboration’s first tasks will be to deliver a four day United Kingdom (UK) visit package to help EDUGILD start-ups implement the engagement with a tailored handheld program in the UK during the last week of January 2017, when the BETT and education innovation conferences (EIC2017) will take place in London. This will be an important link to the framework of the European Edtech community which EDUGILD start-ups will enjoy, courtesy of EPG.
EPG UK is led by Pratik Dattani who has affirmed the co-operation and said in the statement that, “London is the best start-up location in Europe, full of opportunity for aspiring global start-ups.”
Rishi Kapal, chief executive officer of EDUGILD echoed this, saying that a number of start-ups in the portfolio are already keen on participating in this exciting new program.. EDUGILD is also talking to partners in Mainland China, Israel and South Asia (Singapore, Thailand/Malaysia) to institute more of such collaborations.
