Trumplab Edusolutions Pvt Ltd, the company behind communication app for schools Knit has raised an undisclosed seed funding amount from a group of angel investors which include Rohit Jain of Mexus Education and Amit Rambhia of Vardhaman Technologies.
Knit is an Android app used for communication between teachers and students in the form of texts and photographs. It allows teachers to send one way reminders, announcements, homework, activity photos directly to the parent’s phone.
According to the VCcircle report, as part of the funding the company has dissolved its 10 percent stake. The company was founded last year by a group of IIT students namely Jaideep Poonia, Dhanesh Kumar, Vikas Chahar and Shital Godara.
“We will use the funds to increase its presence across platforms (launch iOS, Windows version), upgrade technology and marketing,” said Jaideep Poonia, co-founder, Trumplab Edusolutions.
Knit is free of cost. After downloading it, the teacher will need to create a classroom and gets a class code which is shared with the parents so that they can subscribe to the classroom. For parents who do not use Android phones can subscribe through SMS by sending the class code to 9243000080 and all reminders will be delivered as SMSs.
