Why Do Many EdTech Startups Fail? Really!
In one short sentence: EdTech startups fail because they have a lot of Tech and no Ed.
However, This is how breakthroughs come to a life. This is how a field of human practice becomes disrupted.
Otherwise, everyone would be able to see this product (goal) and be trying to get to it ahead of everyone. But the disruption is called that because no one could see it coming.
For a large interpreter investing into an educational project it may cost unnecessary losses.

My comment to it
Teacher: "I would like to buy a car"
Eduventures: "We have no cars, but we can sell you a kit - you can assemble your car yourself!
Teacher: "OK, I think I can give it a try"
Eduventures: "Yeah, one more thing. All the parts are made by different manufactures who do not communicate, so the parts may not fit with each other, but - hey - it is better than nothing! Yes?"
Teacher: "Well, at least I will be doing something new, maybe I got lucky and and it will help me to make something which would move we a little bit faster than I walk now"
