Edtech Startup Valuationary raises $100K from angels and strategic investors


Valuationary, a Surat-based Edtech startup has raised a pre-seed round of $100,000 from strategic investors and corporate leaders— Ashish Jain (Ex-India Head, Enfusion), Ajay Surana (Ex-Director, Moody’s Analytics – Singapore), Rachit Poddar ( Marwari catalysts), Rajesh Gupta, and Hetal Desai.

Existing investor Marwari Catalysts Ventures also participated in the funding round.

With the latest round of infusion, the company plans to expand its footprint in India and global markets. It also looks forward to building a strong team by recruiting talents across functions like marketing, product management etc.

Launched by Pratik Bajaj, Kunal Shah, and Mahip Gupta, Valuationary is a skills development and recruitment platform that helps candidates gain the right financial and corporate opportunities to find the right talent with the preferred skill set.

Graduates and post-graduation candidates are trained by industry leaders to acquire the technical and soft skills needed to qualify for the industry. The company aims to not only offer jobs through skilling but also contribute to an individual’s career through a continuum of opportunities and growth.

Post its launch in 2020, the company witnessed positive growth in terms of enrolments, placements and social media engagement.

Kunal Shah, Co-Founder and COO at Valuationary, said, “We are delighted to receive this tremendous support from the strategic investors who have not only provided us with their financial support but also understand our business model deeply to support our vision of making financial leaders of tomorrow by giving them the right opportunities today.”

Pratik Bajaj, Co-founder and CEO at Valuationary, said, “We’re thrilled to welcome strategic investors on our captable. While the edtech space is buzzed with coding and software development skills, non-tech upskilling and reskilling remain not commonly talked about, despite non-tech jobs being a major portion of the organised workforce. We understand corporations require a pre-trained high-quality candidate pool, which is what Valuationary is committed to delivering at absolute zero cost to our hiring partners.”
