Startup Bhanzu has secured $15 million to grow its operations internationally, improve its technological infrastructure to improve the educational experience for students, hire more people, and strengthen its curriculum by adding more engaging and goal-oriented content.
Neelakantha Bhanu, Founder and CEO, Bhanzu, said, “Every student is capable of learning and loving math if taught the right way. With the Bhanzu way of teaching math, we want to eradicate global math phobia. We are excited to take #BhanzuRevolution globally.”
“We believe that Bhanzu is solving a large challenge faced by students and is enabling every child an enjoyable math learning experience. Bhanzu is created to inculcate a love for math with innovative learning techniques and establish itself as the world’s most thought-through holistic math curriculum,” said Karan Mohla, Partner at B Capital.
Startup Bhanzu is on a growth drive, new investment to propel market dominance
Bhanzu, the Hyderabad based startup offers mathematics programmes for students between 6-16 years to help students become 4X quicker and better at mathematics, and more importantly, it builds the right foundation for students to develop cognitive abilities.
Bhanzu’s curriculum is curated by Neelakantha Bhanu after expansive data collection and research over four years across the world, questioning the very foundation of math learning by building a bottom-up approach.
“Low math proficiency is a deep problem, driven by lack of skilled teachers, poor engagement, and math anxiety in students. We have been very impressed with Bhanzu’s proprietary pedagogy and curriculum, which results in superior learning outcomes, cognitive development, and future readiness,” said Aditya Systla, Partner, Eight Roads Ventures.
In 2021, the startup had raised $2 million in a seed round led by Lightspeed and a few other prominent angel investors.
