  • Founded by Jhunjhunwala and Nikhil Naik, the ed-tech start-up, has raised $7.5 million in Series A funding.
  • The company will use the money to scale and accelerate the hiring of teams across multiple regions.

Early learning ed-tech platform Creative Galileo on Thursday said it has raised $7.5 million in Series A funding.

Funding was led by Kalaari Capital, Affirma Capital, East Ventures, Valiant Employee Investment Fund and angel investors. The ed-tech start-up has raised $10 million to date, including a $2.5 million pre-series A round in October last year.

Creative Galileo will use the funds to scale and accelerate the recruitment of teams across multiple regions. It will also introduce regional languages ​​and further strengthen the research and development of the platform.

“Over the past year, we have successfully provided millions of children with access to quality content in our digital and educational equality mission. We want to enable tailor-made learning for children around the world through their favorite characters to strengthen their foundations during their early years,” said Prerna A Jhunjhunwalafounder of Creative Galileo.

The company was founded in July 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, by Jhunjhunwala and Nikhil Naik. Creative Galileo is a character-based early learning platform for kids ages 3-10, claiming to have over 7 million downloads and 7,000,000 monthly active users in just over a year.

Creative Galileo was recently named by HolonIQ on the annual list of the 100 most promising EdTech startups from India and South Asia.

“We are excited to strengthen our partnership with Prerna and Nikhil as they continue their journey of transformative learning experiences for children around the world. In the past six months, they have achieved strong growth with low marketing spend. This is a testament to the founders’ relentless focus and strong execution,” said Vani Kola, general manager of Kalaari Capital.

The funding comes amid a massive churn in India’s ed-tech sector. Companies like Byju‘s, Unacademy and WhiteHat Jr have resorted to mass layoffs to cope with a crash crisis.
