“With the growing internet penetration, the scope of digital learning has widened, and we are exploring the possibilities of the same. E-learning can address long-standing challenges of access to quality education, reaching remotest of the areas, student-teacher ratio, among others. We, on top of that, have made it easier for students by helping them understand concepts in their language. So far, we are providing courses for 10th board and plan to add three more languages as well as add courses for three state boards by the end of this fiscal,” Tarun Saini, founder, Vidyakul, said.

Vidyakul is aimed at providing after-school e-learning for the state board students in vernacular languages. The platform understands that education is best delivered when in one’s own language. The edtech startup is currently delivering education in four languages and has already enabled the same for 10 lakh students from 10 states.   

Vidyakul has attracted investors from Gujarat, who appreciated that despite the pandemic, the brand has strived to serve more than two lakh students from the region alone through its platform.

Vidyakul, majorly focuses on the BHARAT with a huge content bank of more than 100k video lectures covering more than 10 state boards across maths and science. We at JITO Angel Network are proud to be part of Vidyakul and are very confident that the founders will lead the company to great heights,” said Sunil Kumar SInghvi, vice chairman, JITO Angel Network.
