This week TechCrunch wrote about the burgeoning interest in Latin American ed tech. Companies like Pearson have long had an interest in the region, investing in the Brazilian K12 and English Language Learning. However a renewed investor interest in the region seems to be fuelled in part by a broader global demand for new skills for a quickly evolving workplace, combined with the region’s relative lack of traditional education infrastructure and the need to find alternative, scalable and digital learning solutions. With 600 million people there is plenty to play for and the opportunity for effective digital education to make a lasting and meaningful impact.
