After the success of their mobile communication app PreBOO, this start-up is ready to launch their next venture
They have two objectives with their portal — to provide cost-effective education and remove the language barrier
This start-up is to launch their next venture after the success of PreBOO appImagine you are a start-up and have a strong hold on the market with your mobile communication app. What would be your next move to make it bigger? That's the question that baffled PreBOO's founders Kushal and Sweta Trivedi. Their app, which they started in 2016, enables organised information flow between more than 70 preschools and parents across India. They were recognised as one of the Rising Startups of Gujarat and even won the Jumpstart pre-seed grant from the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Vijay Rupani.

So, what is going to be their next move? The duo from Ahmedabad answers that question cheekily, asking us to wait a few months till they launch their online portal, mypreeboo.com. "This will be a one-stop solution for anyone, from a teacher to a subject matter expert, who wants to create a course and feature it and for students or professionals who want to opt for a course," says Founder and CEO, Kushal Trivedi.
Kushal is an IT dropout with more than nine years of experience in marketing while his wife, Sweta, is the Chief Technology Officer of PreBOO
So, if you believe that you've got a good amount of experience backing you up, you can dabble in the e-learning space by opting to feature your video, explaining any subject that's within your area of expertise. They will verify your account and even help you design the course. "We are even tying up with universities so that they can offer certification to these courses or opt to put their course on our platform," explains 33-year-old Trivedi, who was at the Vibrant Gujarat Startup Summit 2018 when we reached out to him. He also informs us that they are incubated by the Gujarat University's Gujarat University Startup and Entrepreneurship Council and have a team of five developers, two interns and two advisors on board.

Courses like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Social Media Marketing and others can be expected on their platform in languages like Gujarati, English and Hindi. As and when they expand to Maharashtra, they will launch courses in Marathi as well.
