The Indian Ed-tech industry was one of those chosen markets that grew at a massive scale during the COVID-19 induced lockdown. Industrial growth is mainly driven by the rising demand for personalized courses, counselling facilities and non-conventional career choices of the youngsters. Moreover, Ed-tech became the most funded sector in the last two years. The pandemic forced the teachers, students and parents to invest heavily to safeguard their children from losing out on education. Therefore, The Logical Indian has identified three game-changing startups in their pursuit of quality education for Indian children.
One of the fastest-growing education providers in India is CollegeDekho which connects students to their dream colleges across various geographies. The company's customized student outreach programme aligns with students' individual needs and allows them to select their college in the easiest way possible. From 2015 till today, the company has helped four million students with comprehensive educational support services. The company offers Admissions counselling in India and overseas.

The initiative is also supporting students with the necessary tools to bridge the learning gap caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Within five months of initiating on-ground efforts, the organization tasted professional success in ten states.
