These leadership movements come at a time when the edtech unicorn has witnessed a jump in revenue through sharp growth in its offline business. However, the revenue from the online test preparation segment—its core business—has dropped.
The Bengaluru-based firm reported a consolidated loss of Rs 1,678.1 crore in FY23, a fall of 41.1% from Rs 2,847.9 crore recorded in the earlier fiscal period. Its operating revenue surged 26.1%, touching Rs 907 crore in FY23 compared to Rs 719.2 crore in FY22, as per its recent consolidated financial statements.
Meanwhile, Unacademy has witnessed a series of top-level departures including Arnab Dutta, who was Senior Vice President at Unacademy until June. Dutta assumed the role of Chief Operating Officer at Vedantu in September. Last year, Unacademy Chief Financial Officer Subramanian Ramachandran also departed.
Founded by Munjal, Roman Saini, and Hemesh Singh in 2015, Unacademy claims to have a network of over 91,000 registered educators and more than 99 million learners, offering education in over 14 Indian languages across 10,000 cities.
