BANGALORE, August 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Every weekend in Bangalore, around 1200 CAT aspirants, including hundreds of working professionals, assemble in a single classroom to get trained for CAT by Byju Raveendran, a CAT topper, National Mathematics Olympiad winner and founder of Think & Learn Pvt. Ltd., the parent company of Byju's Classes. The experience is more like a movie, with 1200 students in a huge auditorium, attending the class with pin-drop silence. Over 10,000 students simultaneously and synchronously attend the same class across the country via satellite, making this the biggest virtual classroom of India.
Byju's phenomenal success story can be attributed to his perseverance to pursue his passion to teach. At the young age of 26, he trod the path less travelled by giving up a prestigious seat in the IIMs and a lucrative corporate career to change the way people "Think & Learn".
Think & Learn has been growing exponentially with 200 students in 2008 to over 20,000 this year. It has tied up with the best trainers for each subject of most of the competitive tests, including CAT, UPSC, engineering entrance, GMAT, GRE, GATE, campus recruitment and even formal school education. With a belief that his new learning models should reach out to even more students, Think & Learn has started redefining the contours of content delivery. Now, Byju's profoundly powerful lectures are being delivered through VSAT centers and plans are firmly in place to launch first of their kind educational tablets, which will have both pre-loaded and adaptive content as well as tests. "Good teachers cannot be at every place all the time. So we believe in providing the best platform to them to broadcast their teaching as widely as possible. Every student deserves the best teacher. This is our philosophy," declared Byju.
Think & Learn has recently been awarded the prestigious CNBC-TV18-CRISIL emerging India award for pioneering work in the education sector. It is the youngest organization across categories to win this award. "Good content, when delivered through the right carrier, speaks for itself. This is the reason why our students become our brand ambassadors," said Byju, whose organization gets 60% of its enrollments through reference. It is hardly surprising then that the Facebook page of Byju's Classes has more than 2 lakh 'likes', making it the most liked Educational Services company in India.
