🪁 Our September Update: Can Edtech disrupt the European childcare market?
Dear friends 🍂,
We hope you’re all doing well!
From our usual Edtech perspective, we have followed the increasingly important role of childcare in society 👶🧒 closely for a while, monitoring 🔍 solutions that can disrupt the European 🌍 market in this space. It has led us to take a closer look at how a larger supply of childcare professionals can be created and how to place them, as well as re/upskilling existing childminders. Who are active in providing these solutions? Our analysis (& market map) is published today, see details of how to access it below.
