Infinity Learn, an EdTech startup run by Sri Chaitanya Educational Institutions, has acquired Teacherr, a Hyderabad-based teacher-focused community platform, for an undisclosed amount.
The company said the partnership between the two platforms in education will provide improved learning solutions and offerings, while also accelerating the expansion plan of Infinity Learn.
Founded in 2019, Teacherr is a digital platform for the teaching community where it allows them to attend professional development sessions, apply for jobs, exchange notes, and best-case practices which facilitate peer-to-peer learning. The company claims to have a total of over 20,000 teachers, lecturers, professors, and hobby educators, and over 150 educational institutions have been hired from the portal so far.
Sushma Boppana, Founder & Director of Infinity Learn, said,
"The transaction is expected to generate synergies that will create the additional potential to grow and empower more teachers. Infinity Learn is on a mission to unlock new ways to learn for all learners. We welcome the Teacherr team on board and look forward to a more robust and driven growth trajectory."
Varun Beluguppa, CEO and Co-founder of Teacherr, said,
"We founded Teacherr because we believed that technology can be a powerful lever to make teaching more joyful and engaging — and no one embodies that more than Infinity Learn."
Educational services firm Sri Chaitanya group made its foray into the education technology space with Infinity Learn, earmarking a $50 million (about Rs 370 crore) investment for the new venture in June this year.
Infinity Learn offers students free mock tests so that they can assess themselves and then work further to enhance their knowledge.
