The traditional system of education makes you pay a good amount of fees to attend that prestigious school. With all those busy classrooms, budget cuts and courses shortages, you won’t get the chance to study as you wish to. But, online education has made a great change in the education system and opened greater opportunities for all those who wants to learn something.
Byju Raveendran revolutionised learning after initiating the leading Edtech company BYJU’s in the month of November 2011. This education startup firm, which is owned by Think and Learn Pvt. Ltd is said to have raised an undisclosed fund from the International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank. The company also raised a personal fund of $50 million in the month of September 2016, which was set up by the co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg along with his wife, Priscilla Chan.
