The companys valuation has spiked over INR 37,000 crore after the existing investor, General Atlantic, endowed $25 million in the venture, as reported by the Indian daily news.

This funding will make Byjus founder, Raveendran, who holds a stake in the company, one of the richest new generation entrepreneurs. More so, the ed-tech company, Byju has become a major company wherein the founders, Raveendran, his wife, DivyaGokulnath, and brother, Riju, hold more than 30 per cent stake.

Byjus valuation plunges upward after the company got valued $3.6 billion in December last year. In the last round of funding, Naspers Ventures and CPPIB endowed money in the ed-tech company.
