Achiever's Success Story

Preparing For The Competition Of Life

With a user base of 20 million and more than 11 lakh active paid subscribers today, Testbook started as a passion-child of Ashutosh Kumar, who could not be satisfied just teaching a few hundred students at an institute. Having over 13 years of experience in the teaching industry, Ashutosh started on his entrepreneurial journey with Recharge123, an aggregator platform for mobile phone recharging, in 2009 during his 3rd year at IIT Bombay where he pursued a dual degree of BTech & MTech in Metallurgical Engineering & Material Science.

After a few failed ventures, Ashutosh, Co-founder, and CEO of Testbook, along with his three fellow IITians Narendra Agrawal, Praveen Agrawal, and Manoj Munna, set out to impact the career stability of youth in the country and founded the Mumbai based ed-tech startup Testbook in 2013.

Testbook is a highly personalized learning and assessment platform, helping students prepare for over 400 government job examinations, with an aim to become the number one platform that comes to mind when anyone wants a government job.

Claiming a strike rate of nearly 50,000 selections across exams, Ashutosh, with his team, managed to secure his latest round of funding of $8.3 million from Matrix Partners, Iron Pillar, AngelList India, and Better Capital in January 2020.

Apart from being a serial entrepreneur with demonstrated entrepreneurial skills, Ashutosh unwinds through cooking and innovating in the kitchen and is an avid traveller and biker.

He is one who holds an optimistic approach in all walks of life and aspires to position his company at the top in India’s improving education sector.
