Facebook funds an Indian mobile app startup

Raveendran Byju, founder of 'Byju' - an education mobile app was in for a big surprise when he heard about funding from facebook to his startup. Byju currently offers highly adaptive, engaging and effective learning programs for students between classes 6 to 12 along with competitive exams like JEE, IAS, NEET, CAT, GRE and GMAT.

On September 8, Mark Zuckerberg announced that his new Chan Zuckerberg Initiative would be investing $50 million in Byju. Byju claims that since its launch in 2015, students are 'addicted' to learning through the app.

This seems to be a moment to rejoices, after all, here is a Malayalam-medium schoolboy from a village called Azhikode, Kerela making his way into the big leagues.

With the funding coming in Byju now plans to take his app international and launch it in more English-speaking countries like the United States and The United Kingdom.
