Receiving the award on October 19th, Byju Raveendran, the Chairman and Managing Director of Think & Learn, said, "From physical delivery of lectures in one centre in Bangalore to delivery through satellite across India to launching one of its kind educational tablets in a matter of just four years, Think & Learn has always been a constantly changing and innovating organization. At our core, we are just a partnership of good teachers who have the passion to change the way people "Think & Learn" through technology. There is a huge gap in the way things should be learnt and the way it is. We are trying to bridge that gap as far as possible by making high quality education accessible to all." He added, "It is indeed an honor to be included in this coveted list of Deloitte, which is a clear indicator of our growth over the last three years. With more products in the pipeline and the existing products being strengthened, I am confident of retaining our presence here in the coming years too."

Think & Learn has recently made a foray into education training through tablets, not just for test preparation but also for K-12 education. The K12 tablet of Think & Learn supports the training efforts of the teacher by assessing and then augmenting the knowledge levels of the students. These school tablets use the best features of cloud computing. Think & Learn has been amongst awards in 2012. It has received the CNBC TV 18 Crisil Emerging India Award and the Big Research NDTV Profit Award, in recognition for excellence and innovation in education. With more than a quarter million 'likes' on Facebook, it is easily the most liked education service provider in India. (www.facebook.com/byjusclasses)
