Pune-based EdTech Myelin Receives Angel Funding From Software Entrepreneur Dr Shridhar Shukla

Myelin, a learning solution provider for the affordable private school market, announced that it has received an undisclosed amount in angel investment from Dr Shridhar Shukla, a renowned Pune-based software entrepreneur and investor.

Co-founded by former Infosys employees, Manoj Deshpande and Surendra Brahme, Myelin helps the schools effectively and efficiently manage multiple levels of communication and operations. The platform instantly enables communication (Private Social Network) with the principal, teachers, parents and students. Schools can use Myelin to maintain resources, track teacher effectiveness and monitor academic/non-academic performance trends. It also enables school entrepreneurs to control governance and compliance, gain visibility into financials and deliver learning excellence.

Myelin's goal is to enable the largest portion of the non-government K12 market, consisting of affordable private schools, leapfrog into becoming high-calibre education providers. The startup claims to have been used by around 54000 students and more than 14000 teachers and school management staff.

Commenting on the funding, Co-founder and CEO of Myelin, Manoj Deshpande, said:

"Shridhar is a mentor-investor for us. His vast experience in building software products and technology organisations and his passion for school education is the reason why Myelin is excited to receive his investment."

Myelin's AI integrates multiple features that streamline and automate complex tasks for efficient management. The Pune-based startup helps schools implement India NEP-2020 recommendations like recognising, identifying, and fostering each student's unique capabilities by sensitising teachers and parents to promote each student's holistic development in academic and non-academic spheres. It also offers career inclination analytics based on the overall development of a child during schooling years, focusing on not just academic but non-academic and behavioural data.

Dr Shukla, who has been a highly successful serial entrepreneur and a university professor in the US, added:

"I believe in the teacher-centric model of learning. I did not see many solutions on the market that recognised that. Myelin is a personalized learning solution that enables the teacher to impart personal attention to each child through their digital platform."
