Over $714 million in funding was raised by edtech startups across 46 deals, compared to $158 million across 20 deals in H1 2019.

India and Singapore headquartered edtech platform Kyt is one such startup that recently raised funding. In late November 2020, Kyt raised $2.5 million led by Sequoia Capital India’s Surge to expand its online-first, global academy for extracurricular learning.
