Unfortunately, there is no sure shot recipe for success. Apart from sheer hard work and perseverance, a successful startup is also about being at the right place at the right time! We personally feel that long-term vision and passion for solving a real-world problem have to be the top priorities.
Be patient and keep your focus on the larger goal and resist giving in to short-term benefits. You have to be agile enough to make course corrections and constantly evolve yourself and your business idea with every new experience. And last but not the least, make sure you have the right people around you!
SuperProfs brings curated, high quality content from the best professors across the country onto a common digital platform that students can use to study anywhere, anytime.

Thanks to our proprietary technology, SuperProfs is able to deliver the best quality content on any device and network, even with very poor internet connectivity. We are able to provide a personalized learning experience to every student by using big data and machine-learning algorithms.
We first met Rajesh and Sumit from Kalaari while pitching the business to them. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the team had an excellent grasp of the education industry. The questions they asked led us to think deeper about our business model and about the improvements that could be made. At the same time, the team showed a lot of respect for whatever we had achieved until then and encouraged us to take it to the next level.
Kalaari is a key partner for us. In addition to providing financial support, their experienced team pretty much guided us through the otherwise complex process of setting up a company. It’s been quite a journey! Being supported by Kalaari in our vision to make quality education accessible to masses has given us added credibility and is helping us explore more partnerships at a global level.
