Investment Thesis

English is the language of international business, science, technology and research. Over 80% of academic journals are written entirely in English and an estimated 85% of international organizations use English as one of their working languages. Additionally, 90%+ of the workforce lacks professional English proficiency. Within the growing edtech space, vertical and differenttiated platforms should be able to capture a higher share of value by offering in-demand skills to the companies in order to better compete in the market.
