Five Key Highlights

There are 342 EdTech start-ups in Southeast Asia of which only 34% are funded. Of those funded, 70% are at the seed stage, demonstrating the young age of the Southeast Asian EdTech sector

Singapore is home to nearly half of all EdTech start-ups in the region including the only two EdTech unicorns


USD1.4 billion has been invested in Southeast Asian EdTech companies over the past eight years, of which 75% was accounted for in 2021. The majority of the investors are from the United States


Most Southeast Asia EdTech start-ups offer STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) solutions. However, tutoring and homework help solutions receive the most funding


A near equal split exists between the number of EdTech solutions that focus on child-learning vs adult-learning, yet over 75% of all capital invested goes to child-learning.
