Ed-Tech startup Hashlearn raises funds from Ola and Flipkart


On-­demand mobile tutoring platform Hashlearn, has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from leading angel investors including Flipkart and Ola.

Different speculators who took an interest in this round were Bhavish Aggarwal (CEO and co­-author, Olacabs), Rajan Anandan (MD, Google SE Asia and India), Max Gabriel (CTO ­ Taylor and Francis, UK), Sujeet Kumar (Former President-­Operations, Flipkart), Mekin Maheshwari (Former CPO, Flipkart), Sunil Kalra (Angel Investor), Singapore Angel Network, Anupam Mittal (CEO and originator, People Group/Shaadi.com), and Krishna Mehra (CTO and co­founder, Capillary Technologies).

Bangalore-based HashLearn was established in 2013 by Jayadev Gopalakrishnan and Gokul Janga. It is building a versatile stage interfacing instructors and understudies, beginning with test­prep. It covers subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Math – Board and Entrance Exams from class 8-12.

Jayadev Gopalakrishnan, CEO and Co­-founder said,”coaching classes and private coaching are a urban process. With just 20% of the test­prep market sorted out, there is a colossal business sector to be tapped in reasonable, high ­quality mentoring. Our vision is to give an instructor to each understudy at scale.”

Students attending conventional coaching classes, experience lack of personalization and the inaccessibility of teachers to give individualized help.  HashLearn addresses this by associating students to instructors all day, every day, in an economical way via this app.

HashLearn’ss membership subscription begins from INR 499/month. The guides at HashLearn are from IITs and BITS who have cracked these exams.

The Edtech space is encountering great traction. Just yesterday, Bangalore-based, Byju’ss raised USD  75 million from Sequoia India and Belgium-based venture firm Sofina. Different players in this fragment incorporate Avagmah, Meritnation, Simplilearn, Englishleap, Testbook and so on.
