- TitleCofounder and CEO
Byju Raveendran has shown the world that it really is possible to build a massively successful online education company. Byju’s, as the company is known, has become India’s biggest education technology company, helping millions of students prep and study for the most important exams of their lives while teaching them a thing or two about core topics like mathematics and science. Since its founding in 2011, the red-hot education startup has raised over $1 billion and is now worth more than $10 billion. Raveendran will need that cash as he aims to expand Byju’s into new countries like the United States and the United Kingdom. Though the education business tends to slow down in the summer, Raveendran has been keeping busy. In August, Byju’s bought the education technology startup WhiteHat Jr. for $300 million.
