The need of the hour for all portals is to consolidate, expand audiences and increase yields. It is amazing that Entrancecorner.com has been one of the top student Portals in India despite facing competition from some well-funded portals. We are happy that with this acquisition, our total market reach would be 55% of the higher education aspirants”.
