Teachmint has impacted 1.5 million instructors and students in over 30 Southeast and West Asian nations. The Integrated School Platform, the company’s core product, allows schools and institutions to digitize all of their activities on a single platform.
Teachmint has penetrated over 30 Southeast and West Asian nations, touching 1.5 crore instructors and students at a time when caution is the norm when it comes to edtech. The company has expanded into Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, among other countries.
Teachmint co-founder Mihir Gupta says, “At this time, I’d want to emphasize the distinction between digitalisation of education and online learning. We’re betting on the former. Our services empower schools, whether offline or online, by assisting them in optimizing procedures, saving time, and reducing costs, while also providing instructors with tools to generate higher engagement and efficiency in classrooms (whether online or offline).”
Teachmint’s core product, the Teachmint mobile platform, was launched in early 2020 to enable offline teachers to easily continue instructing in the midst of the pandemic. It is a free SaaS-based, mobile-first end-to-end solution.
Teachmint is presently accessible in 20 Indian and worldwide languages, and it has served 1.5 million instructors. IIT alums Mihir Gupta, Payoj Jain, Divyansh Bordia, and Anshuman Kumar founded the Bengaluru-based firm. The four have worked as executives at OYO, McKinsey, Swiggy, and Roposo, and were recently named to the Forbes 30 under 30 Asia list.
Payoj Jain, who has been active in his family’s CBSE-affiliated school in a rural part of Madhya Pradesh, is aware of the issues educators confront in the absence of easy access to technology.
“We were able to properly appreciate the gap in school and teacher digitalization as a result of this. From various, fragmented technologies to gaps in technological comprehension, we saw that a comprehensive digital infrastructure for schools and instructors had not been established at scale. We began to address this by launching the Teachmint smartphone app, which assisted instructors in digitizing their classrooms in minutes,” Mihir remembers.
Teachers may use the Teachmint app to take live courses, create and grade assignments, and exchange comments.
“What we realized and solved for along the road was designing a mobile-first, low-bandwidth optimized offering. This enabled us to fully penetrate India and establish a presence in over 5,000 cities and towns. This also provided us with a significant potential to develop worldwide across emerging markets,” Mihir explains.
The firm has since extended its products and introduced its main product, The Integrated School Platform. This SaaS platform allows schools and institutions to digitize all of their activities on a single platform, increasing efficiency and results.
Teachmint now employs over 500 people and is located in Bangalore. “As schools reopened over the last year, we have seen significant uptake of our products, and we continue to create deeper capabilities to reinforce it,” Mihir explains.
In the following year, the edtech firm will concentrate on product innovation and expansion. Aside from that, Teachmint intends to expand its presence in the markets in where it now operates.
Mihir explains, “We are on a mission to extend the possibilities of education. We are certain that infrastructure innovation and enabling may help transformational institutions like schools have an even larger effect.”
