UOLO, an edtech platform that brings high-quality, affordable products to K-12 students via their schools, has announced the appointment of Mohit Gupta as Head of Monetization. In his capacity, Mohit will be responsible for leading business operations to make edtech simple, easy, and accessible to millions of Indian students with UOLO.
Gupta has over 15 years of leadership experience in setting up and growing businesses at scale and has a strong track record in strategy consulting and business management. He was a founding member of Paytm Money and democratized wealth management for the masses. Gupta has also been associated with Hindustan Times, Microsoft Corporation, Yahoo, Deloitte Consulting, and multiple Fortune 500 organizations during his stint at Essex. At Uolo, he will play an important role in the company’s growth by strengthening its revenues without any sales force.
Welcoming Mr. Gupta onboard, Mr. Pallav Pandey, Co-founder and CEO of UOLO, said, “Edtech sales in India are unsustainable given how gullible parents are lured into expensive purchases through loan schemes under a high-pressure sales environment. Our vision at Uolo is to monetize through affordable programs without needing a salesman. Mohit’s deep expertise in building pure digital businesses at Paytm, HindustanTimes, and extensive consulting background makes him an ideal choice for heading Monetization at Uolo.”
Commenting on joining UOLO as Head of Monetization, Mr. Gupta said, “I am excited to join UOLO in our mission to democratize the edtech sector with a focus on quality, affordability, and accessibility. The current market offerings are not suitable for more than 85% of the students who are from budget or affordable private schools. We are designing mobile first solutions in partnership with the schools and are on track to build a better India by educating and empowering 20 million students over the next few years.”
