Bengaluru-based workforce development startup Leadburg has raised an undisclosed amount of funding led by the IvyCamp platform from enterprise tech veterans Harsh V. Pant and Ratheesh Raveendran.
“The value-add they bring to the table, beyond just finances, is their strategic thought process, which we believe would take us to the next level much faster and surer,” said co-founder Sangeeth Verghese.
Leadburg is a startup in the self-discovery, leadership development and opportunity matching space. It was founded by LSE and Harvard alumnus Sangeeth Verghese, his fellow World Economic Forum Leader and UN fellow Vidyadhar, and multiple patents holder in cloud computing Akshay Chandrasekhar.
Anju Gupta, co-founder and President at IvyCamp said, “Our long-term vision is to be a partner of choice and enabler for early stage startups to achieve their business objectives. Our success in aiding Leadburg secure investment with savvy investors and institutions reflects our dedication to helping innovative startups and dedicated teams achieve the support they need.”
She further added, “Our core is the passion, skills, experience, funding, and connection with the Global Alumni networks from the IITs, IIMs, ISB, BITS, and many other that we bring to our startups. Everything young people do today from career planning, matchmaking, social engagements, and more is driven by finding the “right connect” – which is what Leadburg enables in a very “fun” and engaging way.”
The platform and games available on the app enable career planners and seekers to achieve a comparative understanding of themselves in terms of their life skills for the real world. The portal currently claims to have over 300 colleges on its platform and daily usage time per individual is reportedly more than 15 mins on the app.
