Seekho.ai, a career accelerator that combines live learning, mentorship and employment, has raised $3 million in pre-series A funding round.
The round saw participation from investors such as the Family Office of the JM Financial Group, LetsVenture, Trica, Super Morpheus, Yuj Ventures, Sequoia Capital India’s Surge as well as prolific angels like Varsha Rao and Amit Ranjan.
The company will deploy the raised capital to grow its disruptive business model- a super affordable all-inclusive access to career related courses and workshops- delivered live by industry mentors.
“Seekho believes that the higher education system doesn’t prepare you for the world of work. Between graduating and starting work, there is a sizeable gap - filled neither by the educational institutions nor the employers. We are using technology to truly democratise job-led education - in an affordable, fun and gamified way,” said Divya Jain, co-founder, Seekho.ai on the fundraise.
“We believe in bringing world class career education at affordable prices to Indians. We believe that Stanford/ Harvard level of quality content and an application-based learning approach is the need of the hour to solve for India's demographic dividend problem. Our vision is super large and we’re just getting started! We feel privileged to partner with the right set of investors who share our vision,” added Arihant Jain, co-founder, Seekho.ai.
"Seekho is working on the incredibly exciting job tech space that is creating a learning platform with real outcomes. What is exciting for us is that they are genuinely democratising higher education for our youth and created an offering that is affordable but yet effective," said Nimesh Kampani of JM Financial.
Seekho.ai is developing a unique AI engine to make learning more personalised and job matching more relevant.
Launched in April 2021, the company is already touching a revenue run rate of $5 million and expects to enable 7 million users by the end of 2023.
