Online learning platform Unacademy has acquired Handa Ka Funda and onboarded founder Ravi Handa, a prominent educator for CAT and MBA entrance exams.
Handa ka Funda is a website started by Handa that offers online courses for various exams. Handa started teaching online in 2012 and so far more than 20,000 students have enrolled in his online courses across cities.
Handa tweeted on Tuesday evening that Unacademy has acquired the venture. Unacademy’s platform will help him reach more students, Handa said in a live session.
Handa will provide live daily classes on YouTube for CAT aspirants and aims at reaching at least 1 lakh students via the free content. Students will also have the option to subscribe to Unacademy’s Plus courses.
Unacademy declined to comment.
In January, Unacademy had onboarded prominent Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering educator Ravindrababu Ravula, as an exclusive teaching partner on its platform.
Ravula is the founder and chief educator of Raudra Eduservices, a leading platform for Gate examination preparation. Aspirants will now be able to attend special free lectures by Ravula on the Unacademy platform from 14 January and ‘Plus’ (subscription) courses from 18 January.
The collaboration with Handa will strengthen Unacademy’s leadership position in the MBA test preparation market.
