While talking to TimesNext, Raj told us that when he was studying in school, there was no penetration of the internet and mobile devices, and it was almost impossible to get individual attention inside or outside the classroom due to lack of tutors and time constraints.

Raj observed that things are changing to the internet and mobile devices. However, personalized learning and stickiness to educational apps are still very less, Raj wanted to fix this, and this is how the idea of starting Utobo was born.


Challenges faced in the outset

Raj faced a lot of challenges, in the beginning, he observed that as for most of the SAAS product company, sustaining and working patiently for a long time was the most challenging task.

The next challenge Raj faced was to bring the tutors with quality content who genuinely believed in raising the student’s performance and willing to engage with them.


Utobo – Partnerships and First Milestone

The company right now is focusing on partnering with top online tutors for different subjects.

The company considers completing their amazing UI-UX design as their first milestone. Another significant milestone was securing the angel investment from Singapore based NRI and getting 100+ enquires from tutors within 1st week of the launch with zero spend on marketing.
