LearnVern is an Ahmedabad-based edtech platform that teaches students in their native language. The startup raised over $1 million from undisclosed international investors.
Founded by husband-wife duo Niral Modi and Aditi Modi, in January 2020, LearnVern is an e-learning platform that provides job-oriented courses in vernacular languages.
The startup claims to have over 5.5 lakh registered students on its platforms to learn around 37 different courses spread across software development, IT, graphic design, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, digital marketing, etc taught in languages like Hindi and Bangla.
LearnVern has also partnered with AICTE and NSDC SkillIndia Training Partner to provide its students with courses that build employability for them.
The startup plans to utilize the recent funds to upgrade technology with more robust web and mobile platforms while offering courses in diverse languages to engage more students.
“At LearnVern we are excited about the funding– it comes at a time when we are looking to scale and reach out to over four crore students studying in colleges across India. India’s newly launched National Education Policy 2020 talks about vocational education and vernacular as the two most important transformational changes, which we had envisioned as the requirement of India’s students and launched our solutions to meet that need,” said Niral, Co-Founder and CEO, Learnvern.
He added that platform-based online learning has gained a higher traction today and that skill-based education in regional languages is emerging as the choice for students and employers.
“Learnvern’s vision is to offer a vernacular learning platform where students can learn for free – at their pace, and in their preferred language. Our new technology enhancements will enable video conferencing, peer-reviews, and forums, and many other features that will deliver a thoroughly immersive experience. Furthermore, the AI-based tool will ensure students get matched to local and national level employer’s job requirements,” Niral added.
The company is presently working with 500 large and medium employers to enable direct recruitment.
With many big players competing in the edtech segment, LearnVern has emerged as an innovative platform and is looking at amazing growth opportunities in the upcoming months.Shishir Gupta, Founder and CEO, StartupLanes
