Unacademy is one of the most successful ed-tech companies in India. Starting as a Youtube channel back in 2010, the company initially incorporated as an ed-tech platform in 2015. The founders of Unacademy are Gaurav Munjal, Roman Saini, and Hemesh Singh.
The vision of this platform is to provide education related to competitive exams like UPSC, JEE, NEET, and GATE. Right after two years, the platform has gained popularity, and it’s not just the marketing, but the quality of education you get from Unacademy is value for money.
This ed-tech company has also included teaching classes 6 – 12. Not to mention, it includes CBSE and Maharashtra board only. From 2015 to 2020, Unacademy raised funds in millions and acquired other ed-tech startups like PrepLadder, CodeChef, and Kreatryx.
They also launched a Graphy app, which allows users to create courses. The platforms they acquired are not much different from Unacademy. It’s just a simple strategy to increase revenue.
Unacademy has funding of $110 million. Gaurav Munjal recently stated “Maybe I will achieve these. Maybe I won’t. But I’ll always aim higher. I’ll always dream big. Remember, you will never achieve more than you aim for.”
The main investors are Sequoia India, Nexus Venture Partners, and SAIF Partners, General Atlantic, Facebook, Blume Ventures.
