Multilingual test preparation platform, OnlineTyari has raised Rs 15 crores in funding from Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. With this, the startup has raised Rs. 20 crores so far.
The investment will help OnlineTyari to expand its vernacular offering, widen exam coverage and strengthen its technology and analytics engine, the company said.
Founded in 2014 by IIT Kanpur alumni Vipin Agarwal and Bhola Ram Meena, OnlineTyari offers a mobile application that allows customized, curated and vernacular test preparation content. It offers entrance tests for public sector units, government jobs, and higher education institutes. The comprehensive preparation materials include full mock tests, current affairs articles and other study material on a platform where candidates can practice, benchmark their performance and improve.
Commenting on the investment Prachi Windlass, Education Director, India, Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, said, “OnlineTyari has already disrupted the market for test prep in India by creating a personalized, data-backed solution for a large but often ignored market segment. The platform approach– that curates content from multiple partners– enables them to provide high quality exam content with a very short time-to-market. This is very important for this market segment as students may appear for multiple exams and need a one-stop solution. OT will play a huge role in helping students from smaller towns and low-income families access test prep services.”
