The conglomerate of Indian companies, The Hero Group, starts hiring for its soon-to-be-launched ed-tech startup.
“Would you like to be part of an exciting, innovative, and high-growth ed-tech startup from one of the largest and most well-respected business houses in the country – the Hero Group?”
These were the exact words from one of the job postings on Head – Human Resources posted by The Hero Group on iimjobs.com.
The World’s largest manufacturer of two-wheelers, The Hero Group is all set to launch its own ed-tech startup and has now started hiring for key positions.
The Hero Group was founded in 1956, when the Munjal brothers, namely Dayanand Munjal, Satyanand Munjal, Brijmohan Lall Munjal, and O. P. Munjal established Hero Cycles Limited.
Being the promoters of BML Munjal University, and some other schools and colleges across the country, The Hero Group seeks to disrupt and reimagine the university education and skills-in-demand for working professionals.
This initiative also promises to offer a high-impact online certification.
The Hero Group welcomes you to be a part of the core founding team of a soon-to-be-launched startup in the ed-tech space.
While ed-tech was among the least funded segments across 46 deals in 2019, an unexpected pandemic outbreak forced this sector to crack some of the biggest deals in India for the first time, reveals Inc42 Plus.
Since lockdown was announced, one of the biggest ed-tech startups of the country, BYJU, has seen phenomenal growth in its user-base with 33 Mn new users. The startup has now acquired more than 75 Mn users.
Alongside, it also managed to raise a large amount of funding besides startups in the sector such as unacademy, Vedantu, toppr, etc.
“It took a crisis (pandemic) for all the stakeholders in the education sector to try online learning”, Raveendran, who founded Byju in 2011, shared while speaking at TiEcon Delhi – NCR and one of the important statement he made to notice is:
“The 21st century is not about who can read and write, but about those who can learn, unlearn and relearn.”
With the sudden rise in covid cases across the country once again, parents prefer to keep their children at home and are more likely to rely on remote learning for their child’s education.
The above data was mentioned to raise awareness about the rise of the ed-tech sector in our country and how it can become fun-way learning in the future, no doubt it can never replace offline classes which is equally important for each individual to gain exposure and learn various social skills.
Let’s wait till any updates are released by The Hero Group about their logical step in the education sector and see what new innovations they come up with.
