He aims at tapping the potential audience in tier 2 of India for which he will be introducing vernacular communication in the marketing strategy. Additionally, his focus will be towards strong digital marketing to increase the traction on the platform.
On his new role Mr. Manish Agarwal, Co-Founder and CMO, PrepInsta said “Edtech space is growing at an unexpected pace, and amidst this it is very important to catch up with continuous innovation and ideas. In India, the one who cuts a sustainable slice of tier 2 might stand out for longer, therefore, there was a dire need for business development targets to stay in sync with marketing approach. We at PrepInsta, have some ambitious objectives for the ongoing fiscal, and therefore we are upgrading our management structure which fits the larger plan. We are sure this is going to produce some fruitful results for the entire team, and I could not be more excited about my new responsibilities as the CMO.”

For Manish the goal is to make PrepInsta as a one stop destination for skill development for any student pursuing engineering.
"Manish has a very clear approach towards the company's targets, and with his insights on the industry he is all geared up to drive the marketing front completely. Being the third most funded startups sector in India, edtech has a lot of opportunities, but so is the competition. Awareness and content quality are two main factors that break the ice for any brand. We are glad that our co-founder is handholding the first important factor for us.”, said Atulya Kaushik, Co-Founder & CEO, PrepInsta.
