AdvertisementZerodha-backed incubator and fund Rainmatter Capital has led an angel funding round of ₹2.7 crore in an ‘online curiosity platform’ – Qshala. The round also saw participation from investors like Mindtree co-founder Kalyan Banerjee and other CXOs.
Qshala is an online learning platform that uses quizzes to help students learn and answer the various ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions on their minds. The startup said that its principles are on the same lines as that of the National Education Policy, which urges children to learn more and beyond their school curriculum.
“Our team members undertake extensive research to create content for the QShala programs in fun induced formats like quizzes, focused sessions, and interactive programs to help sharpen life skills. Our programs start with children from class 1 onwards, and our goal is to expand our footprint to many more cities across the country and the world to cover children in the age groups of 8 to 16 years,” said Raghav Chakravarthy, Co-founder, QShala.
Both Chakravarthy and his co-founder Sachin Ravi have been taking part in quizzes from an early age and met at law school. The startup was founded in 2014 and also holds a Limca record for being the “first company in the world to conduct a quiz in all 7 continents in the world including the Antarctic”.
“It is important for children to develop critical and lateral thinking from a young age much beyond their classroom framework in today’s world. We are rapidly moving towards subjective learning where they would need to build a skill set actually required for employability in the future,” said Nithin Kamath, Founder & CEO,
