Interviewed by Hans Tung and GGV’s investment colleague Madhu Yalarmathi.

In this episode, we have Vamsi Krishna, CEO & Co-Founder of Vedantu. Vedantu is India’s leading online tutoring company that enables students to learn LIVE with some of India’s best-curated teachers. The name Vedantu is formed by two Sanskrit words Veda (Knowledge) + Tantu (Network), signifying a ‘Knowledge Network’ where any student can tap into and learn from a teacher, anytime-anywhere. Vedantu is a GGV portfolio.

In our conversations, Vamsi shared his experience in moving into online after building a successful offline tutoring center, getting his early users and his definition of an “EdTech” company. Before starting Vedantu, he has been a teacher for 13 years and founded a test prep company Lakshya, which was sold to a listed education company in 2012. You can watch Vamsi’s TedTalk in which he made the argument against the standard curriculum.
