Exhibit 2

Tutoring and test prep remain strong categories along with management systems as institutions seek to incorporate digital into offline offerings.

Tutoring, afterschool and test prep remain strong categories with solutions ranging from app based study support such as Questt, Pariksha and Physics Wallah, personalized tutoring (Vedantu) through to social learning platforms (Sohopathi). As more institutions seek to incorporate digital into their traditional offerings we see a surge in systems and learning environments that provide digital learning infrastructure. Startups such as Uolo provide school communication tools or Saarthi Pedagogy offering a platform for blended delivery. Solutions to finance education also continues to grow with newer teams such as Leap Finance and Jodo.

Exhibit 3

EdTech focused on STEAM, particularly in K12 shows significant growth for early stage startups, with most under three years old.

Many of this year's list in the STEAM category are three years old or less, including teams such as Bhanzu, Codeyoung and Codingal, most being founded just prior to the pandemic and seeing traction through that period as parents sought digital solutions when schools and offline tutoring centers were out of action. Over these years, digital habits have formed and these startups continue to develop their products and services.

While India dominates the 2022 South Asia EdTech 100, Bangladesh makes up almost 10% of this year's list.

Exhibit 4

The region is generally a direct-to-consumer market, however this year we see growth in B2B solutions.

Possibly a sign of greater digital uptake in formal education and workforce training, this year sees a spike in teams servicing businesses and education institutions. Solutions such as Apna, Antwalk and Bitclass are providing solutions for workforce upskilling, while LEAD, CollPoll and Toddle are supporting schools and universities.
