🎒 Education in 2024. Ready, Set, Go.

Happy New Year 👋

Welcome to 2024. It's been 4 years since the pandemic hit global education, 3 since capital markets surged with funding, 2 years after PISA confirmed two decades of learning loss and just 12 months since AI and the next generation of Language Models stole the show.

2024 is a fresh start and the stage is set for new products and new competitors, particularly in post secondary education. Vastly reduced funding for EdTech sees a return to fundamentals with focus on the learner experience, well-being, engagement, and retention as top priorities for education leaders as we enter a long term transition to digital as a core part of the education experience.

Just a few weeks ago, we launched the 2024 Global Education Outlook, HolonIQ's annual analysis of the global education economy, presenting over 180 pages of detailed market data, investment & analysis, strategic shifts and trends in education. Download the extract or purchase the full report. You may also be interested in our Global Economic OutlookGlobal Climate Tech Outlook and Global Health Tech Outlook.

We have a jam packed agenda for 2024 including a major new market sizing release and many more exciting new initiatives. Stay tuned or Connect with HolonIQ to learn more about how we support forward thinking institutions, governments and organisations worldwide as they navigate the challenges and opportunities ahead.
