Our global expansion comes at a critical time as families are actively looking for supplemental learning that encourages their children to be creative and learn by doing, said Byju Raveendran, founder and CEO, Byjus.
Expanding overseas has been on the radar of the Bengaluru-based startup for some time. Its $300 million acquisition of WhiteHat Jr last year was towards this end.
Byjus is expanding into the international markets with the launch of Byjus Future School, an online live one-on-one learning platform. The service will initially be launched in the USA, UK, Australia, Brazil, Indonesia and Mexico starting May. It will eventually be introduced in more markets, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
Byjus Future School will offer coding and math during launch. It plans to widen the subject portfolio to include science, music, English and fine arts in the coming years. The subject categories are currently in the developing stage.
