Sourav Ganguly joins hands with Noida-based edtech startup Classplus

After a cryptic tweet, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly on Thursday announced a partnership with Noida-based edtech startup Classplus to promote thousands of instructors and content creators.

After 30 years in Indian cricket, Ganguly resorted to social media to promote this endeavour. “The first step towards achieving your dreams is having the right coach.” Ganguly says in the 30-second short.

Classplus claims to have digitised over a lakh educators and content creators in over 3,000 cities, servicing 30 million students and aiding them in growing their online profile and selling their online courses.

“With Dada (Ganguly) himself by their side, we hope to help these edupreneurs further grow their reach and take their business to newer heights,” said Mukul Rustagi, CEO and Co-Founder, Classplus.

The startup recently bagged $70 million in a Series D funding round, co-led by Alpha Wave Global and Tiger Global and is currently valued at close to $600 million.

Classplus assists educators and content creators in starting and growing their online coaching businesses.

Tiger Global, AWI, RTP Global, Blume Ventures, Sequoia Capital India’s Surge, Spiral Ventures, Strive, Times Internet, and Abu Dhabi-based Chimera Ventures have all invested in the firm since its foundation in 2018.

Ganguly sought to quell rumors of a prospective political debut with a cryptic tweet on Wednesday, seeking to define his next move.

After a few hours of keeping people guessing, Ganguly himself revealed late that his next endeavor will be an educational app rather than politics.

However, his Twitter message had enough ingredients to give rise to speculations that he might be ending his cricketing innings and making debut in politics.
