Indian edtech firm Simplilearn, a leading digital skills training provider announced that since the pandemic started, more than 60 percent of the company’s revenue was contributed by international markets.
In addition to its primary markets of India and the USA, the company witnessed strong demand from South Africa, UK, Saudi Arabia and Australia. With over 70,000 learners learning live at any given time from across more than 150 countries, this year the platform’s active learner base more than doubled the average of 30,000 learners per day at the beginning of the year.
Simplilearn partnered with some of the world’s leading universities like Purdue, Caltech, MIT and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, to offer learners an internationally acclaimed program curriculum, further strengthening its position in the global learning landscape.
Krishna Kumar, Founder & CEO of Simplilearn, said, “Looking back a couple of years, skilling as a concept was focused more at an organizational level. Fast forwarding to today, upskilling and reskilling has become a global phenomenon with enterprises stepping up spends in L&D programs, especially focused towards digital skilling. At the same time, individual learners are acknowledging the need to upgrade their work profiles in line with industry and employer requirements. “
He further added, “With a large part of the team based in India and a growing global learner base, Simplilearn’s unique blended learning model has been one of the driving factors that has led to the company’s profitable growth over the years. We are happy that Simplilearn is today one of the fastest growing and profitable Indian ed-tech companies serving a global audience.”
