Helping Chinese students find local and online courses
Project URL: bj.genshuixue.co
Genshuixue is a Chinese website and mobile app that allows users to search for courses, both local and online, in a variety of subjects from piano to SAT prep.
Once they’ve picked a type of course, users can browse all of the teachers of that subject in their area.
The site includes user comments and verifies details like teachers’ professional qualifications so users can be sure of what they’re getting.
Genshuixue has signed up more than 70,000 teachers who offer more than 69,000 different classes to 'millions' of students.
It has raised a US$50 million series A round. The round was led by Banyan Capital, and reportedly values the start-up at US$250 million.
