Keeping up with its mission to seed fund early-stage startups, We Founder Circle (WFC) has invested in Geekster, an integrated ed+hr tech platform for technology professionals. The round worth $200K saw participation by well-known investors like We Founder Circle, and ah! Ventures.
Geekster is an integrated platform where students get trained on in-demand skills by Industry experts and pay only after getting a job; while the employers can access top-quality talent through data-driven matching algorithms.
Geekster intends to use the freshly raised funds in introducing skill development programs, boosting product development, and offering its product to a broader client base.
Mr. Neeraj Tyagi- Co-Founder, We Founders Circle said, “The attrition rates at Indian IT companies are rising, and this has triggered a war to acquire the best tech talent. Also, early attrition is a new trend that is making it more difficult for IT Companies to retain talent. This highlights the role for out-of-the-box concepts like Geekster that provide professional address, upskilling, and scrutinization, which cannot be handled in-house at the tech companies.”
Mr. Ankit Maggu, Co-Founder, Geekster said, “Getting quality talent is a challenge for the employers, on the other hand, candidates struggle to find opportunities due to a lack of the right skills. We want to fix this ecosystem and enable our employer partners to spend less time interviewing and more time building teams by getting access to pre-vetted engineers who can deliver from day 1. We have witnessed a good response as our model is more relevant now than ever and are glad to be associated with marquee investors who are aligned with our vision for Geekster.”
Speaking about the investment, Subrata Patra, Venture Partner, ah! Ventures said, “Geekster is poised in solving the pain point of tech professionals and employers at scale, with an innovative approach. This not only offers a flexible yet practical curriculum catering to individual learning needs, but also helps develop a tight-knit community of students, instructors, and employers. We are glad to have data-driven tech professional community venture in our portfolio.”
Geekster is employing a unique community-centric approach and strives to create the largest community of global tech professionals on its platform where one can learn & connect with top professionals and get opportunities to develop.
Geekster has introduced a unique model for its user base and is empowering several students with its platform. The startup seems to have huge growth possibilities in the time to come. My best wishes to the team of Geekster.Shishir Gupta, Founder and CEO, StartupLanes
