Indian ed tech platform Unacademy has acquired Coursavy, a platform for India’s civil service exam (UPSC CSEI) preparation.
Coursavy was started in January 2019 by Vimal Singh Rathore, who stated he wanted to make quality affordable educational content accessible to UPSC CSE aspirants through technology.
Coursavy educators will now teach on Unacademy and will also mentor existing educators on enhancing discipline among aspirants.
Gaurav Munjal, co-founder and chief executive of Unacademy Group, said: “As we grow and strengthen our position as the leader in the test prep market, bringing Coursavy on board will play a strategic role for Unacademy in the UPSC CSE examination category. At Unacademy, we are striving to democratise knowledge in India and this acquisition is a step in that direction. The exponential growth in Unacademy’s subscriber base is a testament to the increasing demand for quality online education, and a result of our consistent efforts in building the best learning ecosystem for our learners.”
Coursavy has live sessions that include daily doubt resolutions, core content classes, mentorship, study notes, evaluation and feedback. It currently has various subject matter experts teaching over 70,000 learners through its YouTube channel and platform.
Rathore said: “At Coursavy we have created a 360-degree ecosystem where content, teachers, students, live interactions and query resolution are connected in a daily discipline – empowering students to focus on their studies with a trust that all issues will be resolved by the educator. We are thrilled to be a part of Unacademy and to be able to contribute to the mission of democratising knowledge. Access to the right resources, technology and teams will help us create impact in the lives of millions of learners.”
