Congrats for tutorvista on recieving the funding needed to become the next big business from indian IT space. Though i dont agree much with the title statement “Another Indian Internet Venture”. Though tutorvista is a great model but its too US centric. Hence perfect example of an KPO model. Important thing to learn from the organization is how technology can be a business model enabler. Clearly if you look at most of the ideas getting funded they are technology companies changing the way simple business like tutoring is done.
Though tutorvista is now operating/offering tutoring for most of the school/college/competitive exam programs. Important aspect is 99$ per month with 5000 students per month enrolled is a great cash flow positive model. It will be important to see what kind of other strategies do they use to tie up with local school board which can outsource tutoring of students lagging behind in class.
