A marketplace for all types of educational content and tele-mentorship programmes, Edu4share, has raised seed funding of $210K (INR 1.37 Cr) from a group of angel investors including Nalin Jain-President and CEO at GE, a McKinsey & Co Director and other angels.
The funds will be deployed to develop a mobile-app for user engagement and increase its portfolio to include distance learning learning providers and professional tutors who can sell content online.
Founded by Ashvini Jakhar, an ex-Naval Officer and ISB alumnus and Jerry Jose, an alumnus of HEC Paris and former employee of Goldman Sachs, Edu4share is a one-stop platform for shop for competitive exams.
The platform provides preparatory materials and mentorship to the students by offering books, coaching materials, elearning courses and personal notes. Edu4share also connects the students with alumni who have cracked such exams before.
Idea Behind The Startup
Ashvini Jakhar, founder of Edu4share said that the idea originated from his personal instincts while preparing for GMAT & Medical exams almost 15 years back. There was abundance of coaching classes and course material but lack of guidance and real life experience for solutions crypted the way.
