Founded in 2015 by Pavan Shinde, Girish Shirigannavar, Pramod Ramdurg, and Vinayak Hulabutti, the Hubli, Karnataka-based LabInApp provides a license-based programme that includes experiments in general science, physics, chemistry and biology for class 9 to class 12 using 3D simulation.

According to Crunchbase, LabInApp until now has raised $100,000 investment across different rounds from Unitus Ventures, and various angel investors including Iftekhar Nihal, Madan Padaki, and Subhash Reddy.

Commenting on the acquisition of LabinApp, Pavan Shinde, Co-founder & CEO of LabInApp, in a statement said,

“Technology has become the core to most human essentials, with ed-tech topping the chart; especially in the pandemic world. While schools have their set of challenges, students shouldn’t miss out on experiential learning. Keeping this in mind, we have created a virtual learning & teaching environment representing science laboratories where teachers can teach practical concepts to students.”

BYJU’s present valuation of $10.8 billion makes it the highest valued edtech startup in the world. The company earlier this month raised $500 million from Silver Lake, and $122 million from DST Global last month.
