Do we have an index or theme fund for edtechs?

Recently I spend some money on a edtech.
While it is doing okay, it is not yet profitable.
As I have no glue which edtech will dominate the next 3 to 5 years, I would like to diversify the risk and chances within the sector.
In Dr Google I could not find any edtech index or theme fund yet.
Are you aware of anything in that field?

I don't know Ed Tech or Dr Google. Maybe you could explain what you mean?

When I skim that article, I get lost in the great chaos of education I've witnessed over a very long period. I suppose the investment thought is that some company will invent a killer suite that will take over school budgets for tech. I don't see anything significant happening, though, for the following reasons. Apple and Microsoft share the market. The office suite a school uses in the classroom tells you what hardware and software the district IT will support.

There are other players, like Adobe, Autodesk, and smaller companies. To capture all of the establashed players, and the innovative companies they will acquire in the future, I'd invest in QQQ (https://www.invesco.com/qqq-etf/en/about.html).

Only one is seriously up recently.

It's smaller, and does not make the EDUT portfolio.

Well, 2U is up 50%, from 5 to 7. Udemy and Coursera stopped going down and started going up. I think the sector under performed the last 18 months.

I will monitor quarter by quarter how EDUT benchmarks with S&P500 and Nasday100.
While there is little enthusiasm to support Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn with premium subscriptions. If your next employer offers you more money because of a Certificate in Data Science, you are willing to spend a few bucks on edtechs, won't you.

To be honest, I would just invest as I have for the past 20 years - broad index funds in the desired allocation to provide average market returns. Sector plays are funny things. I do hope things work for you.

Note that TWOU is still down 47% from inception. Time to be careful.
