Our Tueetor founder, Tan Han Sing, was recently interviewed by EdSurge, the education technology news organisation. As a news organisation covering the education industry and the future of K-12 and higher education products, EdSurge has been coined one of the world’s 16 leading ‘innovation spotters‘ in education.

To watch the entire interview, you can scroll to the bottom of this post, but here are some takeaways:

Education Industry Pain Points

Tan Han Sing told EdSurge’s Liana Gamber-Thompson about the aspects of education that interested us the most, and the pain points we observed in the industry.

The education industry is a 6 trillion dollar industry at this point in time. It will hit about 8 trillion in 2025, and 10 trillion by 2030. By then, world population will probably hit 8.5 billion people. so you have these possibilities and this huge market potential, and yet…the amount of money being invested in EdTech is just so disproportinate.

Tan Han Sing

EdSurge: Given that landscape, how have you been making the effort to scale your business?

Tueetor: Of course, having a good technology part such as AWS is great. Being situated in Singapore helps…it’s so nuclear and allows us to test marketing activities, etc. We can then use that to expand to other countries. We’ve found that larger countries, for example, appreciate the location-based searches a lot more.

The Tueetor Goal For Education

When projecting our hopes for the ed-tech space, our founder spoke about what we wanted to achieve in the next ten years.

I hope that in 10 years time, particularly in Asia, no one has to be trapped in this poverty cycle because of education that they cannot afford.

We would like more investment in this place to help asian people alleviate themselves from poverty through the use of better accessible and affordable education, riding on technology.

Advice For Ed-Tech Companies

With the changes in technology over the past few years, our advice for ed-tech companies were focused on one starting point: don’t hide the bad reviews.

I always subscribe to this philosophy: Good customers tell you, bad customers tell others.

So if a customer is willing to tell you how bad they are, they are a good customer.

Don’t chase them away.
