FindUrClass, an extra-curricular activity and hobby class curation startup, has raised a fresh round of funding from a set of investors, including members of VentureNursery, India’s angel backed accelerator. This is the second time that VentureNursery members have invested in the startup. Angel investors who participated in the round include Amit Patni, Anirudh Damani and Samir Shah.
The startup will use the additional funds received in this round to scale up and expand to other Tier 1 cities. The company recently expanded to Pune and Bangalore with over 5000 classes.
In November 2014, the company raised its seed round of funding.
Mumbai-based startup has over 20,000 classes listed on the platform. Over 100 categories listed range from Art and Craft, Sports and Adventure, Singing, Music and Dance to Cooking and Photography among others.
The platform not only aggregates trainers hyper locally but also curates classes. Users can “experience” the class through videos, photographs and read user reviews before taking a decision and paying online.
FindUrClass was founded by Rina Nathani, a consulting veteran who has spent over a decade with KPMG’s Advisory Practice in New York. Nathani graduated from VentureNursery’s Season 5 acceleration batch in 2014.
As curators, FindUrClass has also been building the ecosystem for activities. In addition to working with international schools to strengthen their after school extracurricular activity programs, the company also launched ‘UR Family Activity Pass’ giving more families more options to engage in activities together.
FindUrClass’ Founder and CEO Rina Nathani says, “The response to ‘UR Family Activity Pass’ was beyond our expectations! We had families cooking together, participating in a sports-a-thon or even solving crimes. We will definitely be rolling out more of these in the future.”
