Ed-tech Startup Kriger Campus Gets 30 Lakh Angel Funding
Committed to creating a single platform for all stakeholders in the educational ecosystem, New Delhi-based ed-tech startup Kriger Campus has raised Rs 30 lakh ($46,140) of seed capital from an undisclosed city-based angel investor.
According to the statement issued by the company, the funds will be used to expand its team and develop its website and mobile app. It is planning to launch its services next month.
Kriger, founded by IIM Indore alumnus Suraj Satyarthi, IIT Mandi graduate Chandan Satyarthi, and Neeraj Kumar Verma, who passed out from Sikkim Manipal University, aims to help students take critical academic decisions.
Students, teachers, schools, colleges and other educational institutions can register on the platform to grow their network, get updates about the latest exams, and buy or sell educational content. The platform will also offer career counselling and other education services.
According to Verma, the Kriger team organized a series of seminars in schools and colleges, and interacted with thousands of students to realize that most of them could not connect or get information about the right resources and verified information, and were often misled.
He said, “Kriger wants to be the single platform for any kind of information relating to the education system in India. Our aim is to provide the required educational resources to the Indian population by connecting with all stakeholders of the system together.”
The startup will offer free services to students and institutes and plans to introduce a number of paid services, including career counselling in a few months. It will also open its marketplace, wherein users can buy and sell educational content and material.
