New Players in Education: Cooperate or Die?
New, non-systemic players are emerging in education, which is having an effect on trends in the sector. These include startups, business accelerators and incubators, training centres, etc. On the one hand, this is creating new economic flows and opening up new markets. However, major players are realizing that it is impossible to reach a genuinely high level without working with the government. How will the situation develop, and will a new education market emerge in parallel with the formal education system, or will it take over and appropriate grass-roots innovations? What strategy should new players choose?
