Village Capital will invest in two ed-tech startups while Delhi-based Vahdam Teas has raised funding led by Fireside Ventures.
Village Capital invests in Logic Roots & Project Mudra
Logic Roots and Project Mudra have been selected as top ventures in Village Capital‘s Education India 2017 Education Technology Program, supported by Omidyar Network.
Both the startups will get an investment of $50,000 each from Village Capital. They were selected from 120 applicants focused on solving problems in K-12 education. This was a three-month programme.
“The entrepreneurs participating in this programme share a common vision – improving learning outcomes for students in India. We are excited about Omidyar Network’s support to help these ventures achieve business growth and scale. We invested in the two ventures because other entrepreneurs in the cohort believed in their potential to scale,” said Deepak Menon, Village Capital’s regional manager in Asia.
