The partnership between LearnApp.com and Tanmay Bhat is aimed at filling the gap of the need for good quality financial education that is not just informative, but also interesting.
Subscription-based, online financial education platform, LearnApp.com, announced their partnership with Standup Comedian and YouTuber Tanmay Bhat to launch a series of videos explaining the basics of trading. The 10-episode series will be launched on the channel – Honestly by Tanmay Bhat and will feature Prateek Singh, Founder of LearnApp.com, don the role of Tanmay’s financial tutor.
The partnership will facilitate free financial education for 1 Million users. The video series will be live on the YouTube channel from June 7 and will have one episode per day.
Speaking on the partnership, Prateek Singh, Founder, LearnApp.com opined, “At LearnApp.com we believe that good quality financial education must be accessible to everyone. By partnering with Tanmay Bhat, we will get closer to reaching 1 Million users by the end of the year from the current 200k users. This series makes free-of-cost financial education content accessible to those who never thought they could understand money. The series is technically deep, rich in entertainment with world class production value. Finance needs to be cooler to be mainstream, right now the industry is extremely uptight, this series will change that.”
Adding to Prateek’s thoughts, YouTuber Tanmay Bhat added, “I never really understood what the whole deal about investing and trading is. I came across Prateek’s videos on LearnApp.com and found it interesting. He made trading look simple and easy for anyone. We reached out to them to partner and create a free resource of the basics in trading. We are thrilled to be able to create a wonderful resource available to everyone.”
According to Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) data, new Demat account additions rose to an all-time high of 10.7 million between April 2020 and January 2021. Not only has there been a surge in the first time users, data trends have also shown that in the post pandemic world, younger or millennial investors in India have started opening demat accounts to start trading, in sync with the global trend. This surge indicates the growing need for financial education, especially since there are very few ways one can learn trading and investing.
LearnApp.com was founded in 2018 by Prateek Singh, Swati Sharma, Ankush Oberoi, and Sohail Alam. Prateek is a seasoned trader himself, and a serial entrepreneur. The platform aims at adding new-age skills in trading and investment by the way of recorded video sessions by industry leaders and regular live sessions by industry veterans.
