Crimson Education, World’s Premium Global Admissions Consulting & Advisory brand with a presence across 24 nations globally has launched their bouquet of services in India.
Recognising the need for competitive innovation in India, Crimson Education is now set to bring global best practices, including best-in-class admission consulting and their network of 2400+ mentors and experts from across the globe, to help Indian students competing for premium Institutes and Ivy League Colleges in the USA, UK, Europe, and Canada, reach their ultimate university admission goals.
Crimson Education plans to become a market leader in EdTech service delivery through investment in technology, including a student-tutor matching algorithm and the proprietary Crimson App. They will also be bringing their online high school – Crimson Global Academy; Crimson Rise (a program for students yet to enter middle school); their outreach programs like Crimson Access Opportunity (CAO), scholarship opportunities and access to global partnerships like The Tiger Global Case Competition (TGCC) for Indian students.
Subscribing to their vision of providing a launching pad for students seeking to secure admission in the world’s most competitive universities; Crimson Education has completed an innovation-inspired Series C funding round, spearheaded by a US $10M investment from the Hong Kong-based CTF (Chow Tai Fook) Education Group. This investment, from one of Asia’s most successful businesses, is part of a total US $20M round of funding from leading venture capitalists and strategic investors, and includes a US $5M investment from the Korean Solborn Investment.
Crimson CEO and Co-Founder Mr Jamie Beaton, explains “Since our inception in 2013, Crimson has been helping students globally, by mentoring them through the complicated journey of University admissions. Even though Indian students are a consistently growing diaspora in the international students’ segment to the World’s Top Universities each year, their pathways are shadowed by a maze of misinformation or lack of accessible resources. We want to change that! Our mission is to equalise the admissions playing field for Indian students by equipping them with necessary skills and knowledge, to enable them to compete on the world stage.”
AJ Tills, Chief Marketing Officer at Crimson Global Academy further explains, “Over the past 12 months we’ve experienced a shift to online education and digital learning, as countries struggle to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and students losing out on valuable academic time. At Crimson Global Academy, an accredited online high school, we’ve built innovative learning platforms leveraging exciting opportunities that digital learning provides, redefining the classroom experience to nurture a global studying environment, and most importantly cater to the needs of Indian students who want to do and achieve more.”
Talking about Crimson Education’s strategy in India, Kunal Mehra, Country Manager, India said, “We are a premium tech-driven, game-changer brand; a holistic platform leading with digital first expertise and global network of mentors, strategists, experts and students. We will be working with students finding their best-fit university, create a personalised roadmap, ace the standardised tests, craft the perfect essay, build candidacy through extracurriculars and offer them an opportunity to compete with the strongest applicants from around the world and bridge the access divide.”
