innosight institute growing--or not

Aug 31, 2011

Growing--or not? Just how strong you think the admittedly nascent edtech market is may depend on where on the calendar you put your stake. Michael Horn of Innosight Institute argues here that full suites of edtech are doing well but the same may not be true of supplemental or "one-off" products - that is, if they are trying to sell to schools. By contrast, Marc Andreessen, who's proving his chops as a venture capitalist, suggests here that edtech is finally a segment ripe for growth. The difference may be timing: Michael's talking about the present; Marc's taking a five-year perspective. Of course, you still have to eat between now and 2016! What you seeing? Do you business prospects look better or worse these days?
