BYJU helped them and also participated in the CAT examination and scored 100%. He was amazed by the score so he again participated in the CAT examination and again he scored 100%.

Not only he but his friends who took the help of Byju also scored well in the examination. So his friends advised him to start teaching and helping those students who are preparing for the competitive exams. 

He thought it is not a bad idea so he accepted this proposal, that day he started his journey of entrepreneurship. In the starting, he used to teach to the CAT participants and used to share his way of scoring 100% in the examination. 

Once he found that teaching is the right choice for him, he quit his job came into a full-time teaching career. In the starting he used to teach free for a week, if students liked his way of teaching then he used to charge them.

Later they created a website and App in 2011, where anybody can learn and prepare for the examinations. They named the App as BYJU'S - The Learning App.
