India’s EdTech sector is now the world’s second-largest sector, and it is growing rapidly. By 2022, the industry is expected to be worth $3.2 billion. It is one of the most rapidly growing industries despite the pandemic. Schools and coaching groups had to rely highly on technology to continue teaching during the lockdown. Adding to that, learners also quickly adapted to this new way of teaching-learning.
The new generation of learners recognizes the growing need for information that they can put into practice. Employers look for candidates who can put their knowledge into practice. Virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality is being used by ed-tech start-ups to help students better grasp topics. These technologies not only make learning more enjoyable but also make it easier for students to grasp complex concepts.
EdTech start-ups in India have recently made headlines for a variety of reasons due to the lockdown; and Akshay Hemke got a chance to shine with his existing idea of Eurolittles, which was launched in 2019.
Eurolittles is a company that offers preschool franchises all over India as well as outside India. They have developed educational products such as learning applications, learning kits, learning books, online classes. They have their own kids’ publications, the domain being child education. Eurolittles has its own research unit, where Eurolittles continuously researches on various ways of teaching the kids and improving their childhood education using technology. Eurolittles team is always delighted to introduce new techniques which will help improve early childhood education. The sets of activities conducted in school are both fun and learning-centric so as to focus on a child’s overall growth. They want to shape little minds in an opportune manner.
From the moment a child is born till around 6 years of age, the amount of brain development in a child is immense. The child constantly observes and absorbs from her surroundings and the people he/she interacts with. This is why it is extremely important that children spend a good amount of their waking hours in a safe and intellectually stimulating environment. Eurolittles provides such environment to kids.
The pre-schooling sector is not upto the mark in tier 3 cities and as a matter of fact, not even tier 2 cities. The main aim is to improve pre-school education in such cities, to make good pre-schooling affordable. The idea is to provide quality yet affordable education in tier 2 and 3 cities, keeping in mind the economic constraints of people residing in these cities. The other goal of the start-up is to provide opportunities to individuals to get started on their own pre-schooling setup through Eurolittles’ franchisee program at an affordable cost. Eurolittles wants to help budding entrepreneurs to start their entrepreneurial journey. Also Eurolittles aims to enable women to start their business journey.
Another contribution organizations like Eurolittles make towards the society is, helping women set up their own businesses by becoming franchise owners. Sneha Kawale, who has her Eurolittles franchise in Warora (Taluka Place), Chandrapur. This is her first business venture and she took it up as she wanted to do something on her own. The reason she chose Eurolittles is that she loves to be around children and enjoys the emotional wealth that comes from interacting with little children on a daily basis. She says the best thing about their curriculum is that the child is taught in the way he or she likes best as every child is unique. This feeling of having made a difference to so many, has contributed to her current happy state of mind, more than her financial success.
Akshay Hemke, the founder of Eurolittles, has done schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Of Chanda, and completed his B.tech in 2019. While in college, he has filed a patent on the air-drive device which makes pen drives wireless and later pursued MBA in HR and Marketing, and in 2019 launched his EdTech start-up www.eurolittles.com . He also has Technical and sales experience with Byjus.
Akshay says “As my family is into business I’m very passionate about having my own business, and my interest lies in Ed-tech sector, so I launched Eurolittles for the betterment of society. Here at Eurolittles we thrive towards quality education and shall continue to do so even in future.”
He says “Think big and Grow Even Bigger. Get started and work on your goals, solve problems step by step and definitely one day you’ll succeed”.
“Eurolittles aims to expand the business through franchisee based model. By doing so we want to ensure that we are providing quality education to pre-schoolers across tier 2 and 3 cities at an affordable cost.”
The team is focused and customer-centric and balanced with experienced people and also young minds of freshers to make a perfect blend of ideas and innovation.
