Filo, an instant tutor platform that focuses on clearing student doubts, has raised $260,000 (around Rs 1.89 crore) in a pre-seed round of funding from early-stage venture firm Better Capital.
Operated by Filo EdTech Inc, the platform was set up in November last year by Imbesat Ahmad and Shadman Anwer, graduates of IIT-Kharagpur and IIT-Delhi, respectively.
The company says students using its platform can access a tutor-on-demand through a video call within one minute. It claims that more than 35,000 students have used its services so far, logging 1.5 million minutes in sessions with tutors.
Filo also provides students with access to tutors who speak in their native languages.
