Relying on peer-to-peer linkages and horizontal relationships, the collective action of independent actors using AI is reshaping education, training and learning.

These emerging networks of startups with AI-based learning, education and training are reshaping the edtech industry. As innovators move through seed and early stage deals to expansion and acquisition, the relationships among founders, key employees, board members, and financing organizations inform opportunities and choices in this new business landscape. Together they create the Innovation Ecosystems of AI-based education, training and learning.
