This article limits itself to three fairly specific predictions backed by corresponding hypotheses about the edtech industry. The focus on raising capital doesn't interest me but the depiction of the industry as increasingly complex and integrated. The three hypotheses are that edtech is becoming more analytical, results-focused, global. These are maybe not the most original predictions in the world, but the predictions create more room for the possibility of being wrong. Maybe we won't see a company break out by "measuring and consistently reproducing meaningful student outcomes." Maybe a new workforce management company won't raise $50 million in 2023. Though I confess - I would be more surprised if these predictions were to be wrong than were they to be right.
