Bengaluru- an extracurricular ed-tech startup Spark Studio has raised its first round of investment from Better Capital.
It has recently decided to invest in building a better and strong team to develop the tech platform to deliver a superlative experience and to develop a best-in-class curriculum and content.
Meanwhile, on the investment, the CEO and co-founder Anushree Goenka said- “Extracurricular learning is an unstructured and fragmented market. Parents typically rely on teachers in their hyperlocal communities. This is logistically difficult for parents, and usually not pedagogically sound, and in the current environment, less safe. We have a razor-sharp focus on building a top-notch learning experience, and going deeper in a few categories.”
