About Us

Genext Students Private Limited (‘Genext’) is an ed-tech organization providing full stack education solutions to students and educators since 2013. Over the years, we have reached to 2 million students across 2,000+ cities through a network of 1,000+ tutors while facilitating 12 million+ minutes of tutoring. In 2021, Navneet Tech Ventures Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of India’s largest publicly listed education company Navneet Education Limited, acquired majority stake in Genext.

For the past few years, technology has chiefly been used to empower the ‘Learners’. However, the current decade centres around the empowerment of the ‘Educators’. At Genext, we are reimagining the way in which educators manage their day-to-day activities – both inside and outside the class – with our proprietary solution VEMS (Virtual Education Management System). The aim is to empower educators by automating their everyday tasks so they can focus on their core activity of teaching. All this, while helping them save costs and earn more!

Our contribution to India’s education landscape over the years has been duly recognized. To this regard, we have received several awards and our work has been regularly covered by some of the top media publications across India and abroad. Over the years, we have successfully created strategic partnerships with renowned companies like Samsung, Intel, IBM, Vodafone- Idea, Airtel and PVR to name a few.
