Bryt, a Pakistan-based EdTech startup, has raised an undisclosed amount in its first seed round of funding.
The startup was self-funded by the owners at the pre- Seed stage. The largest investment now comes from MAGM Holdings which also has stakes in other established and upcoming Fintech, Healthcare, Agri tech and Digital Media companies.
Launched in May 2021 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Bryt provides a holistic experience for learners, complementing its engaging videos with helpful features such as “Clear your doubts” for individual support, cheat sheets for revisions, notes, as well as interactive live classes. The platform's content offers a perfect blend of visuals and textual content to keep an individual engaged and ensure high retention.
Bryt is on a mission to change the EdTech game in Pakistan and provide a new landscape of learning.
The brains behind this are a team of renowned individuals with diverse experience. The team is led by CEO Zia Saleem, with 17 years of experience across the corporate and technology sectors.
The team includes Saad Saleem, highly reputed educator that runs a successful YouTube channel called "Mathlete", along with Adil Usman another equally reputed educator associated with many prestigious schools and Faryal Zuberi, a techie dedicated to engineering the software behind Bryt.
The overnight transition to remote learning laid the foundation for an EdTech ready market, yet presented its own set of challenges.
In the near future, Bryt plans to go above and beyond to raise the bar by giving students a rejuvenating learning experience fit for the modern learner.
