Careers360, EdTech Platform, has entered into online coaching space. According to Maheshwer Peri, founder, Careers360, The company wants be a catalyst in disrupting the coaching industry with better results at a fraction of the cost.

He further added, "We will handhold students such that when they walk into an exam Hall, they will have substantial expertise and ace the exam. 'JEE Knockout Crash Course' is the beginning and BITSAT and NEET are on the way. The idea is to make coaching accessible, efficient, affordable and smart. And those that can't afford can write in a mail to: Our promise: If an aspirant wants to be coached, we will enable it, no matter the cost".

It is a fact that India is increasingly moving towards entrance exams to select and shortlist candidates and getting into any of the IITs, IIMs, medical colleges and even jobs are determined by a student's ability to go through coaching. India has more than 70% students not going through NEET coaching and at least 1/2 not being coached for JEE. Whether it is their inability to pay or unwillingness to go through coaching, the numbers are large enough. Careers360 hopes to make a dent in that segment and generate social impact.

Maheshwer Peri, said, "Our target and objectives are three fold: Access to good tutors/coaches to prepare students for the competitive exams is almost non-existent in most parts of the country. Cost of coaching outprices most of the aspirant population hence drastic reduction in cost is the only way to bring equity. By making coaching personal and smart, we hope to reduce the pressure on children and truly make them fall in love with learning while still being in schools".

A data-enabled and technology-driven Educational Products and Services Company, Careers360 seamlessly integrates millions of student and institutional data points with the user generated preferences of its more than 15 million+ monthly visitors, to build sophisticated Prediction and Recommendation products for the students to explore and achieve career plans, based on their interests and abilities.
