Edtech startup xQ raises $1.4 Mn

Edtech startup xQ has raised $1.4 million through a Gujarat-based angel syndicate along with a select group of HNI investors which includes senior leadership personnel from Google, Deloitte, Tata 1mg, Axis Capital.

xQ will use the amount to expand its reach in schools through the flagship offering – the xQ Video Lab.

Floated by Simon Jacob and Kartik Talwar in 2021, xQ teaches kids the art and science of video creation in collaboration with professional filmmakers, educators and advertising professionals. 

xQ claims to have educated over 6,000 students across eight countries in video-making and it is planning to touch at least 1 million students by 2025. 

In the 21st century, videos have become the most effective means of communication. So it only makes sense to enable our kids to become proficient in the language of videos from an early age. xQ is a young startup with a bold dream of touching at least a million children by 2025 and transform education by teaching video-creation in schools. xQ video lab is a unique learning space in schools, designed to help kids pick up video-creation skills in a fun, hands-on manner. xQ helps teachers integrate video-making with the school curriculum by making it relevant for every subject. Equipped with state-of-the-art video-making tools, gears and accessories, this is where students collaborate on academic and passion projects, explore new technology, learn to express their ideas in creative ways and eventually become confident communicators for life!

xQ is by all accounts an inspiring startup with spurring development on E-Learning providers platform. I’m certain this startup would keep on flourishing in its excursion ahead. All the best to the whole group. This will give them a colossal achievement in the future.
