Founders of Bangalore based Learnyst, Shankar Mahesh & Shiv Ranjan Kumar say, “Both of us are school & college mates. We have known each other for the past 20 years and loved developing new apps since our college days. The biggest challenge in education segment is finding product-market fit and customer acquisition. Our focus towards India market has helped us find our product niche early in the game.”

CL Educate is one such movement in education space that has 'Learnyst' inside in an endeavor, which is stimulating the learners. I am sure the world is going to hear a lot about Learnyst in the coming years.
Also, Mr. Rajesh (Director at IIM) says, “Learnyst has been a dream to work with. The product they have provided us is excellent and they have built it with enough vision to last two cycles. But more important than this is their willingness to do two key things: 1) Offer whatever assistance required for the student to crack the learning process. They are usually ahead of us in ideas for improving the quality of delivery. 2) Improving the product for the next iteration. I think both of these attributes will hold them in good stead.”
Educators who are building these online schools are providing a fresh and easily accessible platform for remote areas where there is less mobility also it can be a substitute product for distance learning. While the increase in scalable, online learning option is good news for the soaring price of education. It’s a school in each hand.
An educator as an admin can also track student progress, view analytics, customize their school front & set link their payment accounts. There is no limit on number of courses or on student enrollments but the pricing model is bandwidth based.
