STORY BEHIND THE IDEA BYJU'S

Byju doesn’t have the IIT and IIM tag. Growing up in Azhikode in Kannur District of Kerala, he went to a Malayalam-medium school, What helped was that he had an instant affinity for mathematics and science.

Soon, his love for math and science had gone beyond just academics. An engineer, Byju’s journey began with helping his friend for CAT coaching. This led to BYJU’S CAT coaching classes.

At the time, he was working overseas for Pan Ocean Shipping Ltd, a UK-based shipping firm. What started as an informal stint with just 35 students soon turned into something massive, garnering 1,200 students in just six sessions.

This was the beginning of what would be today’s version of BYJU’S.

In 2011, the company was officially registered as Think & Learn Pvt Ltd. Better recognized by its brand name, BYJU’S – the Learning App, the startup today is one of the few Indian companies that has witnessed 100 percent growth in 3 consecutive years.

Brand Ambassador: SRK.
