Online coding platform for K-12 kids, Codingal raised an undisclosed amount from Y Combinator and has been selected in US-based Y Combinator’s W21 cohort. The investment would be used to enhance the teachers’ base, curriculum, and integrated product to realise its goal of building a one million strong community of school students interested in learning coding.
“Our mission is to inspire school kids to fall in love with coding, and we are building Codingal to achieve this mission by delivering high-quality computer science education combined with world-class coding competitions. Codingal’s selection by Y Combinator is, therefore, an exciting development for us and we count upon their support in building Codingal as a global online school in the K-12 segment," Vivek Prakash, Co-founder and CEO at Codingal said.
Codingal platform fosters community-building activities within school kids with engaging coding competitions and hackathons that help children learn and showcase their projects from the get-go. The startup claims to have registered 40,000+ students and has witnessed rapid growth in student registration and revenue since its inception.
