    Hi Shipra,

    Thanks for the nice snapshot of education market in India and, in particular, for the point of increased e-learning/other use of technology. The scope definitely looks limitless. Looking forward to more articles from you!

    Hey Shipra,
    A nice article from you. I too believe in the present scenario that education market will over shoot with increasing base of middle class families who are familiar with technology and are happily accepting it in their day to day life.
    Entrepreneurs are already out to grab the opportunity to facilitate all these first handedly.
    Waiting for more posts to come from you.

    Hi Shipra,
    I am working with a start-up in the education sector in Bangalore. I am looking for information on companies present in the online tutoring and test prep domain in India. Could you help me with that?

    Hi Shipra,

    I reside in the New York City area. My business partner and I want to start a e-learning venture in India. Unfortunately, we find ourselves in a situation where we are equipped with capital and not much else. We are looking for someone who would be willing to educate, advise, and/or partner with us on this venture as we have only a rudimentary knowledge of the market culture and areas of need there. Do you think you could be of help to us? If not, do you know anyone you could connect us with?
