AET and existing angel investors Better Capital, First Cheque and Abhishek Nag also participated.

Kutuki will use the funds for expanding the content library to cover all major Indian languages, create a more immersive learning experience for children and to expand their reach, especially in Tier-2 cities and beyond.

Kutuki, founded by Bharath Bevinahally and Sneha Sundaram, was launched in 2019. Their interactive learning app is built on a proprietary story and rhyme based curriculum focusing on language (including phonics and foundational literacy), numeracy, life skills, STEM, and general knowledge.

The platform currently offers content in four Indian languages, besides English – Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Marathi and is widely used across India and overseas. In October 2020, Kutuki launched live classes for Phonics and Maths to strong positive feedback from parents across the country.
