We are aggressively investing in developing device agnostic educational solutions and are keenly looking at being at the forefront of this change.”

“Meritnation is the leader in the online k 12 space in India, with 4.2 million registered users. They have an excellent product that has seen a very high renewal rate, something that has helped further reduce the customer acquisition costs for Meritnation. It has an excellent management team that has executed brilliantly. We have immense faith in the team’s ability to continue to dramatically scale up the business. We are very excited to be a part of Meritnation in this journey." Info Edge Founder & Executive Vice Chairman Sanjeev Bikhchandani said.
