Saarthi Pedagogy: Empowering students through rote-free learning

April 27, 2022

Promoted in 2018, Saarthi Pedagogy has quickly established a reputation as India’s fastest-growing pedagogy company that enables schools across all major school-leaving examination boards to deliver technologically driven high-quality learning. Driven by its mission “To empower the schools technologically to bridge the learning gap and attain rote-free learning outcome”, the Ahmedabad based edtech company offers 360° solutions to schools through its customised academic content mapped with artificial intelligence (AI) backed learning management system (LMS) and modern ERP features. 

Saarthi’s revolutionary solution for schools connects teachers, students, parents and schools management on a single technology driven platform that offers an enriching curriculum besides supporting teacher training and contemporary pedagogical practices. 

“Saarthi is the materialisation of my vision to digitise education and make learning more accessible and independent. While new-age startups largely cater to the informal education market such as tuition, test prep, extra-curricular activities, etc., Saarthi is committed to solving real problems for formal education (schools) by complimenting their existing systems,” says Sushil Agrawal, founder-CEO, Saarthi Pedagogy. An engineering alumnus of Ahmedabad Indus University, Sushil Agrawal served as managing director, Maharaja Agrasen Public School, Odhav (Ahmedabad) for eight years before promoting Saarthi Pedagogy in 2018. 

Saarthi’s rote-free learning package includes PPAP pedagogy lesson plan, question paper generator, smart class content, internal marks mechanism, class notes/practice worksheet, post-test worksheet, 365-days training support, school rote-free certification, admission growth assistance, a learning management system that helps identify and address students’ learning gaps, track and achieve academic goals, and a robust ERP system for efficient management of student attendance, fees and finance, transport, exam and payroll management. 


The Saarthi advantage 

  • Measurable improvement in student learning outcomes. 
  • Helps save precious time, energy and resources of teachers by eliminating manual and repetitive work. 
  • Enables school management to track the academic performance of the entire school in one go. 
  • Provides parents actionable insights about their kids. 

Fresh investment boost

The company, which is currently valued at Rs 160 crore, has recently raised Rs 16 crore in a pre-series A (pre-seed) funding led by Pinnacle Investments. According to a company spokesperson, the funds from this round will be used for product enhancement, ramp-up of the technology team, content creation and expansion of the sales coverage. 

In August last year, Saarthi had closed its first seed round of Rs 6.5 crore with participation from JITO Angel Network, LetsVenture, Ecosystem Ventures and other angel investors.

We look forward to building a sustainable and capital-efficient edtech business that will truly impact the lives of millions of students studying in affordable schools in India,” says Sushil Agrawal.


We have been using the Saarthi app for the last two years. Saarthi’s pre test and post test worksheets are extremely useful for students and teachers. The assessment section is the best part of the Saarthi app as it is well designed, innovative and engaging and helps improve student learning outcomes. The app is student centred; it is supportive and well organised. I would like to thank the Saarthi team for making the teaching-learning process smarter and simpler.

For our very first batch of preschool children, we opted for Saarthi Pedagogy textbooks and our teachers are extremely happy with the choice. The textbooks are experiential and well-illustrated so teachers’ job becomes much easier. It is a package in itself with the workbook and textbook. I would like to thank the Saarthi team which has been extremely responsive to feedback and committed to continuous improvement.

We have noticed a huge difference in student engagement and learning outcomes since we started using the Saarthi Pedagogy kit for our kindergarten children. Apart from the engaging learning resources that foster hands-on learning, the Saarthi app makes the process of tracking and evaluating assignments and student progress extremely smooth and efficient. I would like to thank the Saarthi team and hope they come up with more innovative products so our students get the best.
