"E-learning startup Sigrid has raised an undisclosed amount of funding
from Oliphans Capital. Sigrid enables teachers to bring their
courseware, testing material and insights online, allowing them to reach
out to students across the country, and allowing students to benefit
from the ability of these great teachers." reports Jai Vardhan, storyteller, erstwhile entrepreneur and a habitual prankster.
The brainchild of Ajit Maheswari, Atul Kasaundhan and Aakash Aggarwal — Sigrid partners with world class educational institutes and teachers to bring their teaching pedagogy and academic expertise to one and all, beyond the boundaries of a classroom.
Ajit, Atul and Aakash are IIT BHU alumni. Before graduating from IIT BHU in 2009, Ajit had his first education startup incubated in the college campus. Atul worked on various technologies, including on the server side as well as client applications in iOS and Android in Adobe. Aakash helped Ajit on their education startup while still at college.
Currently, the company has 100K users on board. Courseware and teaching content are recorded using Sigrid’s proprietary platform ‘Sigrid Notes’, and it provides a one-on-one teaching experience to the students.
