BYJU’S acquires coding start-up WhiteHat Jr for $300M
BYJU’S has announced the acquisition of WhiteHat Jr for $300M all-cash deal. Earlier, it also secured $400M investment from DST Global. WhiteHat Jr is a Mumbai-based ed-tech start-up, popular for its coding platform for 6 – 14 yrs old children. The updated NEP has mandated coding from class 6th onwards. Hence, this investment will definitely benefit BYJU’S – India’s most popular online learning platform. Also, it’d accelerate its US expansion plan.
