LEAD School is an edtech startup which helps private schools digitise their curriculum.

Basic Information

Mumbai-based firm LEAD School was co-founded by Sumeet Yashpal Mehta and Smita Deorah. It started off as a full-fledged school focused on middle school students. Later in 2017, the firm began offering an ‘integrated system’ for schools by helping them digitize the entire curriculum. It also provides affordable online teaching tools to both students and teachers. The startup currently works with more than 800 schools and claims to serve more than 3 lakh students across the country with a focus on cities in two, three, and four geographies. In August 2020, LEAD School raised $28 million in a Series C funding round led by Westbridge Capital along with existing investor Elevar Equity. See more
