Upcoming digital extracurricular learning platform Crejo.Fun has raised ₹200 crore (about $3 million) in its Pre-seed funding round.
The stealth mode EdTech startup secured the funds from Matrix Partners India and Flipkart co-founder Binny Bansal-backed venture capital firm 021 Capital.
Founded in 2020 by IIM Bengaluru alumni Vikas Bansal and Ankit Agarwal, Crejo.Fun is an upcoming digital extracurricular learning platform that aims to help children discover their passions and interests through creative learning. According to its LinkedIn profile, Crejo’s courses are developed by curriculum experts and will focus on the SPICE (social, physical, intellectual, creative, and emotional) development of children to facilitate their holistic growth into well-rounded individuals.
Crejo’s mission is to help children realize their potential and find out what brings them joy. With the belief that learning through fun is the best way to help children along the path of self-discovery, the startup strives to create a learning experience that is built around enjoyment. Crejo said it firmly believes in the multidimensionality of humans – that each one is born with immense potential and inherent abilities – but the rigors of a competitive world often lead to the potential of many brilliant minds go untapped as learners often do not have an opportunity to discover their passions.
The startup says its sessions will be conducted live by expert instructors with a strong focus on fun and engagement to help children get comfortable and practice with courage and discipline, as they develop individuality around their unique expression of interests.
