The platform will use the freshly infused funds to strengthen their technology platform, expand the course curriculum as well as increase consumer awareness.
Anup Gupta, Managing Director, Nexus Venture Partners, said, “We have been privileged to partner with Karan from the concept stage of the company, and have been very impressed with their execution and rapid growth. We are excited to strengthen our association with WhiteHat Jr’s mission of creating the next generation of innovators and thinkers.”
White Hat Jr was founded by Karan Bajaj in 2018. The firm helps kids between ages 6 to 14 build commercial-ready games, animations and apps online using the fundamentals of coding.
It has developed their own original coding curriculum, which is centered on product creation, and imparts their lessons via live, interactive online classes.
The startup claims to have seen over 150,000 student trials, over 500 teachers onboarded and 100% month-on-month student and revenue growth.
