ImpactAlpha, May 17 – The three startups each target a different education-related challenge in India, where people are often not proficient in English and don’t have access to reliable, high-quality education and training.

Blackboard Radio uses artificial intelligence-based chatbots to teach young children English, which helps Indians get jobs. Madguy Labs makes government exam prep software. Promorph Solutions helps schools manage logistics and raise the quality of administrative processes.

  • Three investments… Each company will receive a $37,000 investment from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and Villgro.
  • More than money… The startups will also receive mentoring and access to Villgro’s network of investors and advisors.
