Gurugram-based CuriousJr is an online coding platform for kids in grades 6-12.

Basic Information

Co-founded by Amit Shekhar, Janishar Ali, and Mridul Ranjan Sahu, CuriousJr is a mobile-first, vernacular-based, online platform focused on students between the ages 8 and 17 years. The platform helps students learn coding with the help of bite-sized content, test their knowledge in a practice arena, and publish their creations on the CuriousJr app store, which they can then share with friends, family and the larger community. In September 2021, the startup raised a seed round of $1 million led by WaterBridge Ventures, EnziaVentures, and angel investors. See more
