Austrade concludes EdTech Trade Mission to India 2024 in Bengaluru, strengthening collaboration opportunities

11th March, 2024, Bengaluru: The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) has successfully concluded its inaugural EdTech Trade Mission to India 2024, which took place from 26 February to 1 March 2024. This ground-breaking initiative was designed to tap into India’s rapidly expanding online education market and to foster partnerships that enhance collaboration between Australia and India.

The mission provided a dynamic platform for Australian EdTech companies, universities, and training organisations to deepen their understanding of the Indian online education landscape and the EdTech ecosystem. By engaging with key stakeholders, potential collaborators, investors and clients, the mission facilitated meaningful discussions and networking opportunities.

A highlight of the mission was the participation in the India Digital Summit 2024 (IDS) held in Mumbai on 27 and 28 February 2024, which offered Australian delegates invaluable networking opportunities. 15 delegates from 5 Australian EdTech organisations and 3 Australian Universities joined the mission’s itinerary which included visits to Mumbai and Bengaluru. These cities were chosen for their vibrant ecosystems and as a representative of the opportunities available for Australian entities looking to expand into the Indian market.

Dr Monica Kennedy, Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner at Austrade, commented: “The Australian EdTech Trade Mission to India 2024 was a resounding success, creating a unique platform for Australian companies to explore the Indian market and establish connections. The engagement and partnerships formed during this mission are testament to the synergies between the Australian and Indian EdTech sectors.”

The EdTech Trade Mission 2024 has laid a solid foundation for future collaboration between Australian and Indian EdTech innovators. As demand for innovative educational solutions continues to rise in India, Australian EdTech firms are well- positioned to meet this demand. Austrade remains committed to supporting Australian companies in navigating the Indian market and seizing the opportunities for growth and collaboration that lie ahead.
