WizKlub - a cognitive development edtech startup that builds future skills for students through its HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) and SmartTech programmes — recently raised a pre-Series A funding of Rs6 Cr. Existing investor Incubate Fund India participated in the round. The startup will use the fresh capital to accelerate its growth and run rate.
WizKlub’s programmes develop skills in children aged 5-15 years through an AI-powered tech platform. The WizKlub HOTS programme develops higher-order thinking skills to ensure every child is a smart reader, thinker, and a problem solver. The WizKlub SmartTech programme caters to children as young as six-years-old & builds lifelong skills and confidence to create tech products by application of coding, robotics, smart devices, and AI.
Post fundraiser, Amit Bansal, Founder and CEO of WizKlub, said, “The current classroom practices are designed around 'knowledge dissemination' and not around building skills necessary for success in the coming decade. The most important future-ready skills are Higher Order Thinking Skills such as logical, creative, and analytical thinking, as well as the ability of an individual to use technology to solve real-world problems. WizKlub programmes are designed to build these future-ready skills, bringing out the best in every child.”
