Facebook is backing a Delhi-based tutor enablement platform 'XPrep' as part of its global programme FBStart. It is designed to help early-stage mobile start-ups.
XPrep mentioned in a statement on Tuesday that under this programme, they have received $40,000 worth of credits and services from Facebook and its partners including Amazon Web Service (AWS), Adobe, Dropbox and MailChimp.
Mukul Rustagi, CEO of XPrep said that there are multiple opportunities in supplementing the assistance-based offline education system using online technologies. He added that paying customers are their product's testimony and they aim to build better, with FBStart helping them achieve the goal faster.
XPrep also earned access to an exclusive community of developers and mentorship from the Menlo Park-headquartered team of Facebook engineers.
XPrep began in September 2015. It serves as a platform to fill the gap within the tutor-parent community. It allows parents to monitor the progress of their child during the course of the tuition while helping tutors serve their batches efficiently and scale their business.
Rustagi also added that FBStart will help them reduce considerable technology costs and the money saved can be redirected to the marketing and team building activities which will eventually help them grow better and faster.
Currently, XPrep has more than 100 tutors and over 6000 students across Delhi-NCR. The company plans to expand soon in other cities.
