Through this investment, LIVC and Beaconhouse, the country’s largest school network, will take a minority position in Knowledge Platform.

Established in 2003, the edtech company offers instructional content, videos, games, and assessments aligned to the national curriculum. It also offers learning management systems, AI, data and reporting, teacher training and technical and school support.

The company claims that it has 200,000 student learners and over 350 public and private schools across Pakistan through its innovative learning solutions, Learn Smart Pakistan (LSP) and Learn Smart Classroom (LSC).

LIVC is a technology-focused pre-Series A venture capital fund regulated by the Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP). It is one of the largest private-sector asset managers in Pakistan with over $300 million under management.

Recently, the LIVC has led a Series A investment firm Pakistan’s transport and events e-ticketing platform Bookme. As part of the investment, LIVC managing partner Faisal Aftab, Lakson Investments CEO Babar Lakhani, and Khurram Samad joined Bookme’s board.
