EdTech startup, Tekie Raises $1.5 M

The Bengaluru based startup will utilize the funds raised from GSV, Multiply Ventures and Better Capital to scale operations and expand the team.

EdTech startup, Tekie, has raised $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. This is the first seed investment in India by GSV, a female-led, multi-stage venture capital firm focused on the $7+ trillion education technology sector across "Pre-K to Gray" whose portfolio companies include Coursera, which recently went public, Masterclass, and Outlier.

Founded in 2017 by IIT Delhi graduate Naman Mukund and SRCC alumnus Anand Verma, Tekie is a live coding platform that brings the art of storytelling to make learning a movie-like experience. The edtech startup has created the world’s first animated series on coding to teach text-based coding to kids. The startup has over 12,000 students learning on its platform and plans to utilize the funds to scale its operation to support increasing demand and build a strong team to unlock the next level of growth.
