For example, an EdTech platform that provides government exam preparation solutions has raised an undisclosed amount from a team of Singapore-based angel investors in its pre-Series A funding round.
The round also featured current and former executives from Coca-Cola, Vivendi, Citibank, Qualcomm, and Interpublic Group.
The new funds will be used to expand the service portfolio in examination departments and languages.
Founded in 2018 by Vivek Kumar and Vardhan Gandhi, Exampur provides government job-related exam preparation solutions to aspirants through their mobile application and YouTube channel, focusing on the local language and the billion-strong region. The platform follows schedule-based learning with several live sessions. The appointment of regional teachers to provide teaching services in the regional language, to provide comfort to the students with better language constraints, is a unique approach adopted by the company to provide quality understanding to their students.
Currently, Exampur has more than 12 million subscribers on multiple YouTube channels and an average viewership of 2.5 million students. It has offline centers in Delhi, Agra, Lucknow, Kanpur, Prayagraj, Meerut and Patna.
Speaking about the platform, Exampur co-founder Vivek Kumar said,
“The public sector employs 20 million people in India and when you look at the real time in India, they are mostly quality jobs. I come from a small village and my dream is to make it easy for those 100 million aspirants. Do good in life by facing competitive exams. Technology is a ladder for those who dream of 4,000 cities and 6 lakh villages in India. “
The startup claims that YouTube has an average of over 40 million monthly views and over 400,000 paid subscribers.
