Edtech company Unacademy on Thursday said it has acquired Coursavy, a platform for UPSC test preparation. In another development, Swiggy has shut down its subscription-based daily home-cooked food delivery service.
Unacademy acquires Coursavy
In a statement Unacademy said that the acquisition will strengthen its leadership position in the UPSC CSE prep market.
Founded in January 2019 by Vimal Singh Rathore, Coursavy has developed a scalable learning platform and process which claims to solve the challenge of lack of discipline in learning. Coursavy educators, including Vimal, will now teach on Unacademy and will also mentor existing educators on enhancing discipline amongst aspirants.
Earlier this year, Unacademy had also acquired Kreatryx, and PrepLadder, besides investing in Mastree, and taking over the custodianship of CodeChef. The platform currently has over 20,000 educators, 30 million+ learners, and caters to over 35 learning goals.
Swiggy shuts home-cooked food service
Swiggy has shut down its subscription-based, daily home-cooked food delivery service “Swiggy Daily”, Entrackr reported.
The service was launched in June last year, which gave consumers access to a variety of simple homestyle meals prepared by home chefs, tiffin service providers and organised vendors.
“Swiggy Daily had ceased operations a couple of months ago in the wake of weak demand. The app never got decent traction and its demand further plummeted because of the closure of offices and educational institutions,” the report said citing sources.
