Investment to be utilized for product development and expansion
Bengaluru, January 17, 2017: Education startup Curiositi Learning Solutions has raised Series A funding from Menterra Social Impact Fund. Curiositi develops learning programmes that uniquely integrate the benefits of activity-based learning with personalized software. Existing investor, Unitus Seed Fund also participated in the round.
Co-founded by Manoj Thandassery, Vinod Abraham and Satish Hariharan, Bengaluru-based Curiositi currently has over 20,000 paid subscribers benefiting from its science and mathematics programme. The company plans to cater to 100,000 students in two years as it works towards the goal of impacting a million students.
The Curiositi School Program offers children in schools a new way of learning Science and Math that goes beyond textbooks – students work on physical models and activity kits in both the subjects. These activities are closely linked to specific concepts being introduced in that class, and help transform the curriculum to activity-based learning, reinforcing learning and resulting in improved learning outcomes.
“Over three years, we developed an exciting, comprehensive activity-led programme for these subjects that are effective, teacher-friendly and affordable for schools,” said Manoj Thandassery, co-founder, Curiositi Learning Solutions. “The addition of the mobile-first app helps us impact learning at home for the first time, and the data analytics generated provides tremendous opportunity to discover and correct learning gaps in the classroom.”
This funding along with strategic support and industry connections will help the enterprise expand its operations to more schools, increase learning outcomes and provide a comprehensive solution that enables experiential learning in the classroom.
