Teachmint, a startup focused on education infrastructure, has launched its teaching platform in 25 countries across Southeast Asia and the Middle East, including Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia. Teachmint hopes that by doing so, educators in all of these countries will be able to become future-ready powered by Teachmint's proprietary, mobile-first classroom technology. Teachmint is now the only Indian education-Saas company to go worldwide on this scale.

Teachmint’s teaching platform has also been localized in languages like Arabic, Thai, Indonesian Bahasa, and Vietnamese to effectively meet the needs of educators in these regions, with more languages coming up. It is available on both App Store and Google Play. This app is adopted significantly with over 100,000 users in just a few weeks. With the release of many classroom features that further improve digital and hybrid learning infrastructure in the next months, the business expects to exponentially increase.

Mr. Mihir Gupta, CEO and Co-founder of Teachmint stated that “Since inception, we have been solving a universal problem statement in education with our innovation in teaching-learning infrastructure. Expanding to international markets has been a natural extension for our product.” He also mentioned, “We have been receiving a lot of inbound requests from teachers and other stakeholders in these geographies, and it delights me to share that we are now ready to revolutionize their teaching journey.”

Cross-border tutoring is becoming more popular, as witnessed by Teachmint. Over 1 million Teachmint teachers in India now have this opportunity thanks to their worldwide growth, which allows them to expand their student base to foreign markets and vice versa for teachers from other countries.

Mr. Gupta said, “The significance of mobile as a more affordable form of technology for millions of children is potentially changing the face of education. Over the past year, a majority of our teachers in India have expanded their classrooms to at least some students outside of their immediate city.” He also added, “With our international expansion, we are thrilled to open up newer possibilities and enable teachers to create truly global classrooms.”

Mihir Gupta, Payoj Jain, Divyansh Boradia and Anshuman Kumar the alumni of IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi founded Teachmint in May 2020. They have executive experience at OYO, McKinsey, Swiggy, and Roposo. Through its proprietary classroom technology, the company is reinventing the infrastructure for education. This is well-suited to education providers all across the world, including individual teachers, schools, universities, and ed-tech firms. With over 10 million teachers and students from 25 countries using the site, it is now available in over 15 Indian and international languages, including English., Vulcan Capital, Learn Capital, Goodwater Capital, and Lightspeed India are among the investors who have backed Teachmint.
