10 Minute School raises Surge funding

10 Minute School raises Surge funding

Bangladeshi startup 10 Minute School has raised 2 million US dollar seed funding from Sequoia Capital India’s rapid-scale up programme, Surge.

This investment makes the first EdTech venture in Bangladesh to secure funding from Surge. The tech startup plans to utilize these funds to invest in product, technology, and talent acquisition.   

Founded by Ayman Sadiq and his co-founder Abdullah Abyad Raied in 2015, 10 Minute School is on a mission to democratize education for all in Bangladesh.

Access to quality teachers across the country has been one of the longest-standing challenges for the students. Much of the development in education is still focused around Dhaka.

The mobile-first online learning platform bridges the gap between aspiration and opportunities by offering up affordable and highly relevant educational content to 25 million learners.
