Here's a fresh idea you can take out there and validate.
Tools for Micro-Schools (🗒Raw Notes)
Sector: Educational Technology ("EdTech")
As many learned over the Coronavirus pandemic of 2019, online learning probably isn't the future (or a future students want at least).
The future is probably smaller; "micro-schools".
Educational system problems are discussed ad nauseum in the United Staes, but it's a hard problem everywhere. Even countries like Sweden have struggled in recent times.
There are three main customers in the vision:
- Trade schools & apprenticeship programs
- Parents who want to homeschool
- Teachers who want to save time (purchasing time-tested lesson plans)
So which customer would make sense to target first? Trade Schools likely have the shortest purchase lead times, and are motivated to outsource work and cut costs/standardize.
The goal is simple -- as the world shifts to different modes of learning, and trusts more organizations with the task of teaching students (and adults), build the organization that helps everyone succeed.
NOTE Education is a horribly complicated and difficult problem, which is excellent for preventing competition (granted you're crazy enough to try and fix it).
