After-school tuitions available in the market at the moment lack the affordability for low and mid-income households besides being unable to teach students in an individualistic manner.

Just within an years of its inception, Cue Learn today has over 25 operational learning centers which basically are small, home-based setups, with no more than 8 students in each session, ensuring personalized attention to the needs of each learner. Unlike traditional tuitions providing models, this startup is capital efficient and highly scalable and has already started delivering superior learning outcomes that too at affordable costs.
Cue Learn plans to direct the new funds towards expanding operations to multiple states across India and also towards increasing the no. of it products.
