Exampur funding

Exampur, an EdTech platform that provides government exam preparation solutions, has raised an undisclosed amount in its Pre-series A funding round from a consortium of Singapore-based angel investors.

The round also saw participation from current and former executives of Coca-Cola, Vivendi, Citibank, Qualcomm, and Interpublic Group.

The fresh funds will be used to expand the services portfolio across exam segments and languages.

Founded in 2018 by Vivek Kumar and Vardhan Gandhi, Exampur provides government jobs-related exam preparation solutions to aspirants through their mobile application and YouTube channel focusing on vernacular languages and the billion-strong hinterland. The platform follows scheduled-based learning with tons of live sessions. The deployment of regional teachers in order to provide teaching services in regional language, to comfort the student with better language bonding, is the unique approach the company has adapted to provide quality understanding with their students.

Currently, Exampur has over 12 million subscribers across multiple YouTube channels with an average viewership of 2.5 million students. It also has offline centers in Delhi, Agra, Lucknow, Kanpur, Prayagraj, Meerut, and Patna.

Talking about the platform, Vivek Kumar, Co-founder of Exampur, said,

"Public sector employs 20 million in India and that’s the vast majority of quality jobs when you look at the real span of India. I come from a small village and it is my dream to make it easy for those hundred million aspirants who are seeking to do better in life by getting through competitive exams. Technology has got to be the ladder for those dreamers in India’s four thousand towns and six hundred thousand villages."

The startup claims to have more than 40 million average monthly views on YouTube and more than 400,000 paid subscribers on its mobile app.
