Pushing Boundaries in Education


About Us

EdExplore is an India-based company with a vision to create meaningful impact in global education. We assist educational organizations with establishing an international or regional footprint and help them realize their unique goals and objectives.

Our forte lies in identifying and implementing workable solutions for our clients. We believe that advisory services alone cannot fulfill client objectives, which is why our emphasis is always on execution. 

With expertise across K-12 schooling, higher education, skill development, careers and recruitment, and the startup ecosystem, we have worked closely with students, teachers, institutions, businesses and other key stakeholders in the education sector.

At EdExplore, we believe in creating long-lasting relationships, delivering quality, and holding ourselves to the highest ethical standards.
