The journey so far
The idea of Proctur was conceived to address the pain points of traditional coaching institutes and students. Nishant Agarwal, the founder of the company, was deeply aggrieved at seeing his sister, who was a coaching institute faculty, carrying around so many books and managing a myriad of tasks manually. He was also concerned about the growth of the students in his vicinity as they were being deprived of the benefits that come with the implementation of technology in the education sector. During his travels through the country, he realized that it was quite worrisome that a majority of the population did not have access to quality education. In fact, some areas had no access to education at all.
Nishant, therefore, decided to put his technical acumen to good use and deeply thought about different ways in which he could help both the teachers and the students – and voila – the idea of Proctur was born!
As the venture started to grow, the company realized that the problem they were trying to solve was much bigger than it seemed at first glance. They needed to address all the components of the education system – including students, educators, and parents to get the desired results. They also found that it was necessary to address the educational needs as well as the non-educational needs of the students, simultaneously.
From the very beginning, Proctur focused on affordability, so that the majority of the population can benefit from the venture. This is where the school segment came into the picture. All of this culminated in the creation of two verticals, catering to the vast unorganized sector of educational institutes as well as the organized sector comprising the schools.
