KiCo, an EdTech platform offering online tutoring solutions for school students, has raised fresh funding at a valuation of INR 10 Crore from Angel Investment round.
With the new financing, the Delhi-based startup plans to strengthen the education sector in rural areas, expand its employees and improve its teaching abilities.

Co-founded by Gunjan Chowdhary, Amit Gautam, Gaurav Chowdhary, and Saurabh Pandey in 2021, KiCo is formed by the two words which carry the legacy of the Indian Education System since ages, KITAAB and COPY. The platform provides excellent educational opportunities and guidance to students belonging to grades 1 to 12 as well as for JEE/NEET exams. The students who are a part of this program get many privileges such as, they can clear their doubts with no time limitations or location barriers using the online education platform.
KiCo’s mission is to become the best online education platform by continuous efforts and dedication of our highly capable team of faculties and staff who have proved themselves to be the leaders in their respective fields throughout their career. Its aim is to create an environment of learning in the field of basic education and to incorporate excellence in the teaching methodology and make it a niche throughout the hooks and corners of the country.
The startup also realises the necessity of bringing a hybrid learning model to India’s rural areas, with a goal of establishing 1,000 hybrid classrooms and 500 affiliates. Thousands of children have been influenced by KiCo-classroom hybrid models across the country, and the project’s goal now is to grow to 1000 hybrid classrooms. It would help around 20,000 students who, due to financial constraints, are unable to obtain a proper education. KiCo has done an excellent job of reaching out to rural residents by delivering information in their native tongue.
KiCo has been praised by Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister, and it has also contributed to the digital education of students in Delhi’s government schools.

The company stands out from the competition as it has customized lesson plans and cutting-edge digital content.

In the near future, KiCo also plans to establish 1000 digital educational centers across the country. These centers will be using different languages for conversing and explaining the students, including Hindi, English, and regional languages.
