Today we talk with Manan Khurma, Founder at Cuemath who answers all these questions for us.
During our conversation he shares how building an Education venture is not like building on a rocket ship, but building with trust.
He has been building Cuemath for almost the last decade and he highlights that unlike the common notion or FOMO behind going online being an Edtech venture, right before Covid, only 5% of their entire revenue came via Online classes.
