Wiingy, a platform that unites robotics kits and 1:1 live classes on coding and advanced sciences for children, announced that it has raised $400,000 in angel funding round.

Aroa Ventures (Family Office of Oyo Founder Ritesh Agarwal), Abhinav Sinha (Global Chief Operating Officer, OYO), Maninder Gulati (Global, Chief Strategy Officer, OYO), Kavikrut (Chief Growth Officer, OYO), Rohit Kapoor (CEO, India-South-East Asia, OYO) and Ashish Goel (Founder CEO, Urban Ladder ), along with Vineet Nanda (Founder Sift Capital) and Manish Chopra (Global Leader, Genpact) also participated in the round.

Established by Asit Biswal, Wiingy strives to offer experiential co-curricular education to students in robotics and other STEM courses. The startup said its strength lies in an innovative curriculum, which helps students learn science, coding, and hardware concepts while building robotics projects guided by live online instructors. 

Speaking about the funding, Asit Biswal, Founder, Wiingy, said, “Students across age groups love our robotics courses and parents appreciate the unique hands-on experience of our courses. Our ‘Learning by building’ methodology, which is focussed on practical learning while doing experiential projects, has meant that students are deeply engaged throughout the curriculum. Our platform also enables a new set of educators who enjoy STEM teaching by connecting them with students around the globe.”

Commenting on the investment, Gaurav Gulati, Head and CIO, Aroa Ventures, who led the round, added, “Robotics and advanced sciences continue to play a crucial role in our society. Its fundamentals should be instilled in students’ education to better prepare them for the new technology first world. Wiingy understands this and continues to creatively work towards strengthening the quality of education in this space. Wiingy is on a mission to empower tomorrow’s changemakers and Aroa is glad to support them in this journey.”

Wiingy seems to have built an innovative platform to help children discover and learn robotics. I believe the company will soon emerge as a dominant player in the market. My best wishes to the team of Wiingy.
