Chennai-based edtech startup Learntron has reportedly raised an undisclosed amount of funding in its Pre-Series A round of funding from Kae Capital.

Learntron was founded by Indian School of Business (ISB) alumni Kuljit Chadha and Subramanian Viswanathan in 2016. The company caters to the learning needs of both educational institutions and enterprises. It operates on a business-to-business (B2B) model, partner-driven model and caters to markets in India, the Middle East and South East Asia.

“We have reinvented the virtual classroom experience to make it activity-based and interactive, as opposed to boring screen-share webinars. Our technology is resilient and works in bandwidth as low as 100 kbps, which despite the 4G revolution, is the reality of internet infrastructure in India,” said Kuljit, COO & co-founder of Learntron.

The platform includes latest learning design principles like bite-sized learning, social learning, gamification and micro-learning and created a solid, feature-rich product. Besides, the startup also has a live learning option which could also work in low-bandwidth conditions.

Some of Learntron’s customers include companies like the Mahindra Group, Britannia, Scope International and Delhivery. It also serves educational institutions such as TalentEdge, DPS Doha, Birla High School, Kolkata and GD Goenka Schools.

In December 2016, Learntron launched an online sports management course in association with Baseline Ventures.

“What we saw in Learntron was a productivity enhancement and engagement product with global appeal and a clear validation of product-market fit,” said Shubhankar Bhattacharya, venture partner at Kae Capital told ET.

Few other players in this space include Avagmah, iProf, Meritnation and Englishleap.
