Online agricultural education platform Rocket Skills has raised Rs 2.2 crore in its pre-seed round led by Better Capital, First Cheque and Titan Capital. Angels such as Harpreet Singh Grover, Aprameya, Abhinav Jain and Pravin Jadhav have also participated in it.
According to the Gurugram-based startup, the fresh infusion of funds will expand its program to other sectors and improve its product offerings.
Rocket Skills offers courses in fields such as gardening, beekeeping, and mushroom farming with industry leaders that help students learn new skills and establish their own ventures.
Founded by Mohit Jain and Vibhu Bahuguna, the platform claims to have onboarded over 10,000 paid customers within six months across Tier II and III cities, of which many are running self-sustained agri-businesses.
