The online platform invites users to complete various tasks, take part in webinars where teachers explain tasks of increased complexity, and also take mock exams. The advantage of the platform is that artificial intelligence independently builds a curriculum for a student, finding gaps in knowledge based on the results of his tests. The company’s turnover varies from 120 to 150 thousand rubles per month. According to investors, the approximate cost of the business itself is already 21 million rubles.
