While technology has helped increase access to quality sources of education, course completion rates on online education platforms and apps in India have been low. Addressing this issue of stickiness of online educational content by helping edtech enterprises understand the behavioral traits of end users of their products is something which Gray Matters Capital considered as essential for edupreneurs to achieve success both from an impact as well as improved learning outcomes perspective.
