Commenting on the investment, Nao Murakami, Incubate Fund India, said, “After-school-education for K6 segment in India has been highly fragmented. At the same time, the rise of the middle class allows parents in urban India to start thinking seriously about giving quality after-school-education to their kids.”

“So, the platforms like WizKlub, which provide standardized quality and easy access to after-school-education has waited for a long time among parents of K6 students,” he said.

“As WizKlub’s model is highly scalable and monetizable, we strongly believe that they will create a great impact on Indian K6 education space,” Nao Added.

Speaking on the fundraise, Amit Bansal, Founder & CEO, WizKlub said “Supplemental education beyond the curriculum is the greatest need in the Indian education system today and we are addressing this area with our research-based learning programs. Technology is transforming the world at an unprecedented pace, which necessitates children of this generation to be lifelong learners and adept problem solvers.”
