Earlier this week, edtech unicorn Unacademy announced it raised $440 million in a new round of funding led by Singapore's Temasek along with other existing backers like Softbank Vision Fund, General Atlantic, and Tiger Global Management.

The new round will increase the valuation of the startup to $3.44 billion, an increase of 70 percent from $2 billion in December last year.

Unacademy's CEO Gaurav Munjal said Zomato's Deepinder Goyal and OYO's Ritesh Agarwal also participated in this round of funding. They join some of the other top founders and CEOs who have backed the startup in the past, including Flipkart's Kalyan Krishnamurthy and Udaan's Sujeet Kumar.

In 2020, the edtech space saw a major boom due to the coronavirus-led lockdown as students remained indoors.

Online education is projected to grow 6.3X to create a $1.7 billion market, between Class 1 and 12, according to venture capital firm Omidyar Network India and research firm Red Seer’s joint report. The post-K-12 market is expected to grow 3.7X to create a $1.8 billion market.
