Investors pumped $9 billion into Indian startups in 2015 and the momentum continues with over $38 million invested in the first 10 days of 2016. India ranks third in the world for the number of startups, after the US and the UK. On January 16th 2016, the Prime Minister will formally launch the ‘StartUp India StandUp India’ initiative and share the government’s action plans to support early stage startups.
On this launch, global tech giant Google is set to host a live contest for early stage startups. They have made a long term commitment to help young entrepreneurs and startups achieve their vision and fuel India’s startup ecosystem. We are very proud to announce that one of five startups featured by Google is an IEIF investee – Guru G.
Founded in May 2013, Guru-G converts existing content into adaptive teaching packs. These packs provide in-class guidance to teachers on different ways in which they can teach a topic. The guidance adapts to the teacher’s past behaviour, student moods & the practices that have resulted in best learning outcomes for their students. This makes it the easiest, least intrusive and most teacher-friendly way of ensuring that student performance improves.
