Creative Galileo has secured $7.5 million in a Series A round of funding. The edtech startup will use the money to scale up and fast-track hiring across the teams in several geographies.
Creative Galileo, early learning ed-tech startup, announced on Thursday that it has secured $7.5 million in a Series A funding round. Kalaari Capital, Affirma Capital, East Ventures, Valiant Employee Investment Fund, and angel investors led the investment round.
The ed-tech startup has so far secured $10 million, including a $2.5 million pre-series A investment in October of last year.
The cash will be used by Creative Galileo to scale up and speed recruiting across teams in several countries. It will also add regional languages and boost the platform’s research and development.
“In the previous year, we have effectively developed and offered access to high-quality material to millions of youngsters as part of our Digital and Educational Equality objective. We aim to enable personalized learning for children all around the world using their favorite characters to improve their foundation throughout their early years,” said Creative Galileo creator Prerna A Jhunjhunwala.
Jhunjhunwala and Nikhil Naik launched the firm in July 2020, amid the Covid-19 epidemic. Creative Galileo is a character-based early learning platform for children aged 3 to 10, with over 7 million downloads and 7,00,000 monthly active users in just over a year.
HolonIQ just included Creative Galileo to its annual list of the 100 most promising EdTech start-ups in India and South Asia.
Vani Kola, managing director of Kalaari Capital, said, “We are thrilled to further our collaboration with Prerna and Nikhil as they continue their path of altering learning experiences for children all across the world.”
They have achieved substantial growth in the previous six months while spending little on marketing. This demonstrates the founders’ unwavering dedication and great execution.”
