In recent news, a Lahore-based startup focused on EdTech called Edkasa has raised nearly $320,000 in the pre-seed funding led by i2i Ventures. Moreover, the startup had announced the launch of its exam preparation application for matric and intermediate students which later went live on the Google Play Store.
The two visionaries behind the startup were Fahad Tanveer and Annum Sadiq, a husband and wife duo, who realized that students on the high school level do not do well in Pakistan and the fact that not every parent can afford to pay extra tuition for their children. Annum who oversee the education delivery at Edkasa mentioned the following:
“We empathize with the fact that parents, teachers, schools, and society at large have a lot of resources, time and effort vested in high-school students. We want to see students get top marks, continue their higher education, and increase our country’s knowledge-based economy.”
