    Tynker and Cervin Ventures

    Our journey with Tynker started in 2012 when we invested in the seed round. The decision for us to invest was simple. We knew the co-founders as a successful and driven team. Despite previous successes, we could clearly see that they were not going to slow down any time soon. They were embarking on a mission that had significant implications for the development of human capital in a technology driven society. 

    “This is our third startup together in the last 20 years. Tynker has been uniquely satisfying to us because we've had the honor of introducing millions of kids to Computer Science through coding games.
    We continue to be inspired and amazed by their coding creations every day!”

    Congratulations to the founders and the Tynker team for building a great platform. Good luck to you as you scale globally with BYJU’S.
