Our robust technology and extensive content supplement the in-person teaching at our centres, giving students flexible hybrid learning alternatives at incredibly low fees. Numerous local star institutes are being added to our ecosystem almost every day.” said Dhruv Javeri, Co-Founder Klassroom.
Amit Kumar, Senior Partner, ah! Ventures, said, “We have always believed in the hybrid system of education as a business model for running an education company. Since the beginning, Klassroom’s approach has been on the same lines which have been their mantra of success. This has been validated by quite a few players in the sector and will continue in the same fashion. The team’s passion and execution abilities have always impressed us. We wish them a super bright future and will support them in their endeavour to become a world-class education company.”
