"Prepare for a funding winter for startups" that is the warning coming from Gaurav Munjal, co-founder and CEO of online learning platform Unacademy.

Munjal said that the company has "significantly reduced our brand marketing budget," and "we will focus on organic growth channels instead".

Munjal emphasised on the as set out a new strategy "Every test prep category that we run must become profitable in the next 3 months. Unacademy centres should be profitable in FY'23," he added.
