Watch: Vedantu co-founder Vamsi Krishna on edtech momentum post pandemic

25 Feb, 2021

Earlier this week, edtech startup Vedantu acquired Instasolv to boost its doubt-clearance capabilities and increase its presence in tier-II and tier-III markets. 

Bengaluru based Vedantu is riding the edtech wave induced by the Covid-19 pandemic. The platform, which claims to have over 25 million monthly users across 1,000 cities around the world, raised $100 million in a growth round in July 2020. The investment came some  three months after the platform secured $13 million in an extended Series C round from Chinese venture capital firm Legend Capital, existing investor Omidyar Network and others.

Operated by Vedantu Innovations, the company was co-founded by Vamsi Krishna, Anand Prakash, Saurabh Saxena and Pulkit Jain in 2011. 

In an interview with TechCircle, Krishna, CEO and co-founder of Vedantu spoke about the company’s performance last year, consolidation in the sector, strategies and plans for 2021.
