Suniel Shetty, a Bollywood actor-turned-investor, has invested in Klassroom Edutech, a Mumbai-based hybrid tutoring education firm.
Klassroom Edutech has received significant investments from the ah! Ventures Angel Fund, Hem Angels, Pavan Bakeri (managing director, BakeriGroup), Kishore Ganji (founder, Astir Ventures), and others since its founding in 2016, as per reported by Entrepreneur.com.
“We warmly welcome Suniel Shetty to the Klassroom family. His presence will support the expansion of Klassroom learning centres and increase user engagement on the learning app so that millions of students can benefit from the platform,” said Alka Javeri, executive chairman, Klassroom Edutech.
Shetty’s direct involvement is expected to strengthen the startup’s social activities to close India’s education gap, according to a corporate statement. NGOs and social trusts enable this.
