Introduction to Investments in India

•There has been increasing interest in the Indian education market. Many entrepreneurs and investors are actively exploring high growth opportunities in education.
•Led by the thrust from the “Make in India” mantra of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, India is home to the third-largest number of start-ups globally.
•Start-ups present a great opportunity for creative expression of business enterprise, and the next generation entrepreneurs are all keen to cash in on the opportunity. Education presents one such huge opportunity, with India having the largest population with an age less than 18.
•The education sector in India can be segmented into formal and non-formal segments. Formal segment refers to K-12 (Kindergarten to 12th grade) and higher education. Although the formal segment constitutes more than x % of the market size, the opportunities to invest in the formal segment have been curtailed by strict regulations that hinder participants from distributing profits.
•The non-formal space is smaller, but the lower levels of regulations permit participants to distribute profits.
