For long, Manan Khurma seemed to subscribe to the philosophy that slow and steady wins the race. While it is not clear if it will win the race, Cuemath, the math-learning startup he founded, certainly inched along for years.

As recently as 2019, its core team consisted of just six roles: CEO, COO, marketing and curriculum heads and two technology leads. 

“In the zero-to-one journey, we operated with a very small team. Each person played multiple roles. I was, for example, not just running the company business but also building curriculum every day. But that approach was not scalable beyond a point,” Khurma told The CapTable.

Since 2021, however, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Cuemath has shifted from first gear to top gear.
