Education forms the backbone of any thriving economy and recently we have begun to look at mainstream education and see where we are able to improve on through the use of technology and through innovation. LearnCue is an EdTech Company, which aims to provide innovative study pedagogy and learning experience to competitive exam aspirants who want to study from expert faculty in their chosen discipline at their pace and at their convenience. Their founder, Padmapriya discusses their journey “We are passionate and focussed in delivering a more data-driven approach for learning through our product – PrepCue. There has been very good traction and response from the student community towards our product features and offerings. We are still new in this space and haven’t tasted success but we hope and believe that our honest effort to help the student community will help us attract them to use our product and in turn achieve their goals.”
What got LearnCue started? Padmapriya was always interested in education and “I always wanted to do something in the education domain to impact students’ lives in a positive way and with my technology background. I was confident that I could create a platform for students which would help them in preparing effectively for competitive exams. The main driving force for starting up LearnCue, is my husband who is a hardcore techie and has good exposure to the EdTech space. He has provided me learning and insights into the positives and challenges of setting up a venture. We started this venture using WordPress as our main content solution which helped us in avoiding spending time in building a website from scratch. The ease with which information could be posted in it has helped us in running this venture with a lean tech team. We also heavily leverage open source technology for data storage and analysis.”
Armed with passion, persistence and optimism, Padmapriya discusses their biggest challenges and their plans for expansion “Creating a space for ourselves in this crowded EdTech market is a big challenge, where there are multiple players but we are sure that the USP of our product is the ease of use and the way it would make a big difference in the way a student approaches these exams. We are dedicated towards one mission – to unclutter Civil Services Examination and other examinations and give students the right tools and approach. We are connecting with students and spending our initial months in understanding their pain points so that our product addresses those on priority. Students across India have different learning needs so our product will be developed considering the same.”
