Toppr is an after-school learning app for students in classes 5th to 12th. It’s co-founded by Zishaan Hayath and Hemanth Goteti, alumni of IIT Bombay. Our vision is to personalize education using technology.
Toppr is India’s best learning app that provides personalized learning for students studying for boards, olympiads and various engineering, medical and commerce related competitive exams.
We currently have 2.5 million registered students in classes 5-12. Over 1.5 million doubts have been solved, over 11 million tests taken and 140 million questions have been answered on the Toppr app so far.
Each child is unique with distinct learning needs. We are building Toppr to adapt to each child so that they learn better. Toppr has found the perfect product-market fit and this is only the beginning for us.
