Learning-based games platform Quizizz has raised over $3 million in funding.
The investment round was led by Nexus Venture Partners with involvement from existing investors.
Quizizz is a program aimed at turning homework into self-paced gaming, working in collaboration with teachers. Over half of schools in the US are engaged with the tool, answering around half a billion questions a month.
Gupta founded the company alongside Deepak Joy Cheenath back in 2015, beginning with a school in the Indian city of Bengaluru.
“Our mission is to motivate every learner,” said Quizizz CEO Ankit Gupta.
“When we hear that a student initially struggled on a math assignment but then replayed it six or seven times because she wanted to improve, we know we’re on the right track.”
