Sunder joins Cuemath from Swiggy. As the Chief Operating Officer of the food delivery platform, he scaled Swiggy’s business manifold. With 23 years of business and technology sector experience, he has also worked with organisations like Procter and Gamble.

Global expansion

As the CEO of Cuemath, Sunder will be responsible for the company’s overall business and its global expansion, the statement said.

“I’m excited to be part of Cuemath’s journey… I am also drawn to the mission of democratising math and aiming to create the next generation of thinkers and problem solvers,” Sunder said.

Development of curriculum

As Chairman, Khurma will focus on pedagogy and developing the curriculum to ensure Cuemath provides the best learning experience to children, parents, and teachers.

“I am confident his (Sunder’s) proven track record and extensive experience building consumer brands, coupled with a laser-focus on industry-leading operational practices, will drive and extend Cuemath’s upward trajectory to becoming a leader in global Math education,” Khurma said.

Launched in 2013, CapitalG and Sequoia-backed Cuemath has engaged with over 2 lakh students across more than 20 countries.
