Ever since the pandemic hit India and schools were forced to shut down, the country's edtech players have been witnessing a COVID-19-led acceleration. India's first edtech unicorn, BYJU'S, has been making the most of this 'unprecedented' growth.

BYJU's claims to have registered 20 million new students on its platform since the lockdown began. The total number of registered users stands at 64 million, with 4.2 million annual paid subscriptions. The unicorn doubled its revenue to Rs 2,800 crore in FY20.

Investors were quick to recognise this growth, and BYJU's turned out to be investors' favourite during the pandemic.

In February this year, BYJU's received $200 million from General Atlantic. In June, BYJU's announced that it had raised another undisclosed amount of funding from BOND at a valuation of $10.5 billion. Last month, the edtech giant raised yet another Rs 909 crore from Yuri Milner-led DST Global, acquiring Mumbai-based WhiteHat Jr post that. More recently this month, BYJU's raised $500 million in a round led by Silver Lake. Existing investors Tiger Global, General Atlantic, and Owl Ventures also participated in the round.

It is evident that there is no looking back for BYJU'S. With an increasing demand for its services, the edtech startup is also expanding its team. If you are keen to join the edtech sector, YourStory has curated a list of job openings at the decacorn:
