6 LearnTech Startups That Will Gain Momentum in 2021

The LearnTech industry, which thrives on technological advancement in the area of education and learning, was already on the rise before the COVID-19 pandemic hit us.

And now that a majority of the schools, colleges, and universities remain shut, there is a significant growth in the adoption of online learning programs like assignment writing help which gives complete online solutions with professional experts. Quite naturally, the LearnTech startups are using this opportunity to their advantage.

Before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the EdTech market (a major part of the LearnTech landscape) was already worth 76.4 billion US dollars in 2019.

Reports suggest that it is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.1% from 2020 to 2027. As the LearnTech industry continues to expand, here are 6 LearnTech startups that are gaining massive momentum in 2021.
