Education technology startup Winuall has raised $2 Mn in funding from Prime Venture Partners, Beenext and LivSpace founder Ramakant Sharma, among other angel investors.
Winuall was founded by Ashwini Purohit in 2018. It claims to have a presence across 50+ cities across India. The startup said it has seen massive growth with over three million minutes of learning in April, and with over four million responses from both teachers and students providing in-depth analytics to both students, and teachers.
Ashwini Purohit, CEO at Winuall said, “Our aim is to enable tutors in India to go digital and improve the quality of learning for students. We want to empower the tutors and coaching institutes to remain independent by building and retaining their own brand name through our platform.”
Shripati Acharya, managing partner, Prime Venture Partners said, “The tutoring market is at a significant inflection point, and there are a lot of tutors who want to manage their own student interactions and develop an independent identity. Winuall is facilitating this by helping tutors and coaching institutes to go digital.”
Winuall plans to utilise the funding to build its product and also hire across technology, product, AI and business development functions. It claims it already has over 5,000 tutors on its platform, and has seen a massive increase in the adoption of online live classes due to the lockdown.
