Speaking to The StartupLab, Kunal Bhatia, Co-founder of SuperLearn, said,
“Despite it being obvious that access to affordable quality education is still a challenge for parents and kids in India, there still seems to be no apt solution. We are solving this by building Internet scale classrooms through which every child can learn in a live class directly from the best educators in their respective fields. Our vision is to provide millions of children with access to affordable high quality education across a range of hobbies, co-curricular activities and life skills. Our freemium offering will enable kids to explore a range of such activities to discover and develop their potential while having fun.”
As per the startup, children have cumulatively consumed over 4.5 million minutes of learning on SuperLearn. Additionally, their live classes have been attended over 300,000 times.
In the next 12 months, SuperLearn aims to have one million kids learning on the edtech platform.
