Delhi-based EdTech startup, GuruQ has raised Rs 2.5 crore funding from a group of HNIs. The company will use these funds for expansion and marketing. GuruQ is a single, simplified and cohesive EdTech platform that provides online, and offline tutoring based on global quality parameters. The company was founded by Minal Anand in 2016.
The Pre-Series A funding will see GuruQ expanding its operations in Punjab and Haryana. It will offer services in the cities of Ambala, Rohtak, Karnal, Meerut, Hisar, Ludhiana, Amritsar, Jalandhar and Chandigarh. The company's research indicates that these areas have a wide gap between a good teacher-student connect. GuruQ teams are presently scouting these states to recruit teachers and knowledge experts for the platform.
“We are delighted to have investors that understand and believe in our vision and passion. This funding is a significant milestone in allowing us to expand the business, strengthen development and create value in the market with new features. We will continue to innovate not just how our students access their tutors but also how they assimilate the learning. And our focus will always be to assure our students to get the highest quality, along with reliability & accountability,” said Minal Anand, CEO and Founder, GuruQ.
