Vision and Idea behind UrbanPro

Rakesh Kalra
Rakesh Kalra

Rakesh Kalra was the main man behind UrbanPro. When he returned to India back in 2011, he had a hard time finding good quality mentors/tutors for his children’s extra activities.

This was the point he got inspired to start an online platform that will easily connect the teachers and students all across the country. Thus, UrbanPro was born.

Rakesh’s only motive behind UrbanPro was to connect children with best-quality teachers who can fulfill are their learning requirements.

In simple words, UrbanPro’s vision is to become the ultimate stop and learning solution for all the Indians out there.

UrbanPro is a digital platform that enables students and teachers to create their profiles on the portal. Students will post their learning requirements & needs, and teachers will respond to them. Students can also set their preferred location and monetary budget.

To summarize the working process of UrbanPro, let’s look at it in this way:

  1. Any student who needs help regarding academic and extracurricular work will post his requirement on the UrbanPro site.
  2. While you enter your queries, you can apply filters like subjects, topics, location, budget, etc.
  3. Students will then get customized responses from several teachers and institutions.
  4. Once you get the responses, you can compare them to know what’s best for you.
  5. After comparing, students will be able to choose the best for themselves.

1) Is there any app for UrbanPro?

Yes, UrbanPro has its apps on Google Play store for trainers, learners, and tutors. There is no IoS app of UrbanPro, but having an IoS app is on their loss. Currently, they are focusing on android users and can make an IoS in coming future.

2) Is there any free trial memberships period?

Currently, there exists no such thing. Any member who has not upgraded himself/herself with any membership plan is considered a free member.

Free members receive limited queries. Also, these limited queries are a few hours after being sent to paid tutors. Thus, if you don’t have a membership, you can be at a loss.

3) Does UrbanPro charge any commission?

No, UrbanPro doesn’t charge any commission. The only cost you can have is while interacting with student queries using coins.
