10 Minute School provides affordable and accessible education for K-12 school and college students, university admission test candidates, job-seekers and people looking for specialised skills training in Bangladesh.
The majority of high-calibre education in Bangladesh is limited to urban areas, and approximately 47 million students struggle to access quality lesson and upskilling opportunities due to high costs, as well as geographical and technological barriers.
10 Minute School aims to bridge the gap with a wide range of content offered in formats that are optimised for low internet connectivity and bandwidth. The startup, which offers more than 25,000 videos, and skills courses prepared by some of the best instructors in Bangladesh, recently surpassed three million users, making it the country’s largest EdTech company.
The platform provides a personalised learning journey for students with the opportunity to join live classes, access resources like audiobooks and notes, and test their learning from a bank of over 50,000 quizzes.
10 Minute School was founded in July 2015 in Bangladesh by Ayman Sadiq, a globally recognized educator with a number of national and international awards under his belt. Ayman lay the groundwork for 10 Minute School in 2014 when he started making free online videos that went viral. Abdullah Raied, a second-time founder passionate about sustainable products, joined as co-founder in 2021. He was part of an industrial automation startup that created a data-driven farming ecosystem in Bangladesh.
