Investment Strategy
Omidyar Network India believes there are few more direct pathways to opportunity than education. We invest in solutions that can improve learning outcomes for millions of students by reimagining what is taught and how students learn in the 21st century. This includes developing competencies like critical thinking and creativity, and mindsets such as grit and empathy – which are vital to quality learning and critical for learners to succeed as the workforce of the future.
