Edtech startup Kyt raised $2.5 mn led by Sequoia India’s scale-up programme Surge. It saw participation from Titan Capital, along with other angel investors including Kunal Shah, Amrish Rau, Jitender Gupta, Allen Penn and Martin Li.
The company plans to expand its online first, global academy for extracurricular learning with the funds infused. Kyt Academy has a 12 week course for children who are passionate about specific areas and want to develop their skills. Subjects include voice lessons, dance, yoga, language and reading.
“Tripti and I started Kyt to build something for our daughter. After speaking to several parents, we realised that there is a much larger need to provide high-quality courses that focus on the holistic and all-round development of the child, beyond just academics. With a strong team of curriculum designers, pedagogy experts and education consultants, we embarked on this vision to build an online-first, global academy for extracurricular learning for kids,” said Bhavik Rathod, Co-founder & CEO, Kyt.
