AttainU, an edtech startup, has raised an undisclosed capital in angel funding from a clutch of investors including Shailesh Rao, former head of Google India.

Bengaluru-based platform said that the raised funding will be used to further strengthen faculty, development of courses, counselling teams, and build a semi-automated platform to cater to the huge inbound student demand AttainU is receiving.

Divyam Goel, CEO & Co-founder, AttainU, said, “For us, the goal has always been about solving higher education in a systematic, scalable way. From the beginning, we have had a very strong focus on maintaining our high-quality learning outcomes as we scale. Over the last 10 months, we have been able to figure out many processes, complementing human psychology, to facilitate deep-rooted learning.”

AttainU was founded by Divyam Goel and Vaibhav Bajpai in 2018. It provides live online courses as college alternative to individuals. Currently, it offers full-time, online seven-month-long software engineering courses for users.

The startup also provides career counselling as part of their student assessment process and connects graduates to industry partners for placement upon completion of the course.

The edtech space aims to serve students who have a college education but don’t have a job or a satisfactory job and more importantly, don’t need to have prior coding experience.

The company said its courses are focussed on industry-aligned practical skills and professionally required life skills and follow a deferred fee payment model conditional to employment aka Income Share Agreement (ISA).

“At this point, we are receiving double-digit thousand student applications every month and are very excited about the scale of impact we will be able to deliver through our tech-first approach,” Goel added.

Furthermore, according to AttainU, every year approximately nine million students graduate from colleges, out of which 85 percent don’t make it to well paying, white collar jobs.

Data states that 50 percent of all BE/Btech graduates and 60 percent of all MBA (including PG Diploma) graduates are still considered not employable by tech first organisations, the company added.

Besides, some of the well known and emerging edtech platforms in India include BYJU’s, Unacademy, MyMBACircle, Scholr, Memory Trix, Clap Global, among many more.
