Gray Matters Capital seeds platform to teach Indians to code in native languages



ImpactAlpha, April 30 – Chennai-based GUVI delivers instructional videos in regional languages, as well as tech mentorship and job leads to aspiring Indian engineers.

Founded by former PayPal executives, the company says videos in vernacular languages gives students an edge and “potentially paves the way for more technology startups to emerge” from India’s smaller cities. The platform has more than 140,000 users and more than 900 videos.

U.S.-based impact investor Gray Matters Capital seeded the firm with Rs. 1 crore ($143,000) from its edLABS India education initiative. GUVI aims to train a million coders in India by 2020.
