Pakistan being a country with thousands of Government and Private schools spread
across the region, institutes here still suffer to provide easily accessible, quality
education within the system. Local schools of Pakistan lack in the area of incorporating
modern technology into the existing structure.
The loopholes in the sector led to highlighting the EdTech startups who are thriving
to uplift the education system throughout the country with a blend of modern tech. The
National Education Challenge 2020 played a major role in spotting light over the challenges
faced by these startups and provided them a platform to showcase their ventures. From over a
100 entries to 25 semi-finalists and finally 3 winners to win prizes worth 3 million, the
journey of #NEC2020 created a significant impact towards transforming the Educational Reforms
National Education Challenge served as a platform of encouraging the EdTech Innovators by
providing them with a competitive environment and an incentive in the form of exciting prizes.
The challenge ensured to guide the EdTech Innovators through helping them build strong business
models by aligning Mentors for each team. This was an opportunity for the startups to explore
the market and strengthen their operations. At the end of the challenge, the semi-finalists
were able to reflect at their achievements gained from this digital event and find out their
areas of improvements.
