Sony has entered the Education space in India by introducing Sony Global Education (SGE) products to the country. SGE is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation. Founded in 2015, its mission is “to provide a range of unifying, non-traditional services that inspire a passion for learning across the world and that offer the opportunity to act on this passion, and to create a new educational infrastructure for a connected society.” As part of this new approach, Sony plans to launch ‘Global Math Challenge’ (GMC) in India, which is currently available in Japan, US, China and few other countries.
Masaaki Isozu, the President of Sony Global Education said, “SGE started with the mission of bringing innovation to the education industry through products, applications and services to create educational infrastructure that everyone can access. When anyone, anywhere can easily get a quality education, anyone can learn and compete successfully in modern society. Our objective is to make this a reality.” He added, saying, “By launching it in India, we would like to provide a stimulating educational environment and inspire a passion for learning across the country.”
Kenichiro Hibi, Managing Director, Sony India, said, “Looking at the importance and value Indian society gives to education and learning, we are happy to launch the India chapter of Sony Global Education in order to support STEM education in the country.”
