EdTech start-up Tekie on Monday said it has raised USD 1.5 million in seed funding co-led by Silicon Valley-based GSV Ventures and Multiply Ventures, an early-to-growth stage fund by former e-commerce executives from Myntra, Paytm, Flipkart, and Alibaba.
Better Capital has also participated in the round, the Bengaluru-based startup- said in a statement adding that the funds raised will be utilised to scale operations and expand the team.
“As a first-generation learner, I have seen the transformational impact of education first hand. When we started four years back, our goal was to build a product with a focus on three pillars – put learning outcomes at the forefront, make learning an enjoyable experience, and provide the best teachers to learners. Our animated series, live projects, and gamified learning journey makes the course an immersive experience and the students look forward to their sessions,” Tekie co-founder Anand Verma said.
