White Hat Jr CEO Karan Bajaj Quits A Year After Acquisition

Exactly one year after Byju's acquisition of White Hat Jr, Karan Bajaj announced he will be taking a sabbatical.

Founder & CEO of White Hat Jr, Karan Bajaj decided to take a "small sabbatical" a year after the platform was acquired by Byju's in August 2020.

White Hat Jr began as a platform to teach coding to children through one-on-one online classes. The platform has since expanded to teach music and math, with more than 11,000 educators and 17,000 employees. It was acquired at $300 million by Byju's, an online learning platform for K-12 students, as well as, exam preparation. 

Karan Bajaj in a LinkedIn post stated, "Barely 2.5 years ago, it was an idea. Now, thanks to the power of tech, thousands of students and teachers are on the WHJ/BYJU’S FutureSchool platform, creating things with coding, maths, and now even the guitar and piano daily across the world, living the mission of kids being builders and creators versus consumers!"

He also expressed gratitude to his employees and Byju in the same post.
