Doubtnut is an Indian interactive online tutoring app which was started by Tanushree Nagori and husband Aditya Shankar, in 2016.[3] In 2009, the couple had started giving offline tutoring to grade 9 to 12 students, where they taught mathematics and science. Doubtnut is available as an Android application or by accessing its official website

Operation[edit]

The platform uses image recognition technologies to provide solutions of some mathematical and science questions.[1][4] To find the solution to a question, one has to upload an image depicting the question. The app extracts text from the image and tries to match it in its database of questions which are pre-answered, having recorded video solutions. If it finds a match, then the result is provided to the user otherwise it asks the user to post their question publicly for tutors available on the platform to provide a video explaining their query.[citation needed]

Funding[edit]

Doubtnut received its first funding of US$100K from Ankit Nagori of Cure.fit in April, 2017.[citation needed]

In 2019, Omidyar Network and WaterBridge invested about $470,000.[5] In January 2020, the company raised $15 million in Series A round of funding from Tencent Holdings, and existing investors Sequoia Capital and Omidyar Network India.[6][7]
