Mr. Sahil Sheth is the founder and CEO behind the innovative Ed-Tech start up Lido Learning. After
completing his Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and Economics from Duke University, USA, Sahil
went on to work as an actuary at Towers Watson in Washington DC.
In 2011, while studying for his actuary exams online Sahil realised how effective e-learning platforms
were in providing high quality content anywhere at any time. Sahil saw the opportunity to create a
similar platform that could radically improve learning outcomes for students in India.
Inspired, Sahil moved back to India and set up Infinite Student in 2012. Infinite Student was an
online platform that replaced textbooks with detailed video tutorials for the entire ICSE and CBSE
syllabus. It was quickly adopted by premier schools across the country. Given its traction and the
advanced tech platform, Infinite Student was acquired in 2015 by BYJU’s, the major player at that
time in the offline education industry. As part of the acquisition, Sahil moved to Bangalore as VP of
BYJU’s and along with others in the Infinite Student team helped with BYJU’s pivot into edtech with
launch of the BYJU’s learning app.
After textbooks, the next frontier was tuitions and coaching classes that are eponymous with
education in India. With the onset of high speed internet, tuitions could now be provided online.
So in April 2019, Sahil decided to start Lido Learning (Quality Tutorials Pvt Ltd), an online immersive
live tutoring platform for students ranging from Class 5-9. For the best learning experience, a
student needs a rockstar teacher to guide them, interactive content to keep them engaged, and a
personalized platform to improve results. Lido combines these three to create high achieving
students who study smarter, not harder.
