Chennai based Edtech startup Ahaguru raised an undisclosed amount in a Series A round led by an investment firm that is managed by Anand Mahindra’s family office.
Ahaguru was founded in 2012 by Gomathi S and Dr Balaji Sampath. The edtech startup mainly functions through two products: a mentored learning programme and live virtual online classes.
The former provides students with a personal mentor to track their progress and answer their doubts. The latter is a two-year programme that helps students directly learn from expert teachers.
Balaji Sampath, Cofounder, Ahaguru said, “The funding will enable us to launch new courses to help students with their school and board exams. We are investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to personalise the learning experience for each student. Our predictive learning model identifies student learning patterns and suggests enhancements that improve the success rate of students.”
The company plans to use the fund to recruit additional teaching staff, develop new technology features and online courses for high school students. It also claims to increase its student base across India and the Middle East.
