GuruLab, a Malaysia-based platform pairing qualified tutors with learning analytics, has closed a US$1 million (RM4.3 million) seed investment round with investors, including Singapore-based Wright Partners.
GuruLab intends to use the funds to enhance its proprietary analytics platform and expand its offerings within the country’s education ecosystem. The long-term goal is to expand into other potential subjects and markets.
The startup is also recruiting for strategic roles, including tutors, software engineers and data scientists.
In 2021, GuruLab was founded by Cambridge University graduate Eer Kai Song and Oxford University graduate Vicky Tan. Starting with English, GuruLab currently offers live-streamed tuition classes. This allows students throughout Malaysia to access some of the country’s top tutors in the comfort of their homes.
“We believe GuruLab’s feedback algorithm and data-driven methodology can address the shortcomings of the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach used by schools and tuition centres,” said Tan.
The global e-learning market is predicted to reach a market value of over US$ 660.8 billion by 2027, with Asia Pacific projected to exhibit the fastest growth, as per a report conducted by global consulting firm Acumen Research and Consulting.
