College admission and higher education services platform CollegeDekho has closed its $35 million round with the arrival of Disrupt ADQ and QIC. The round was led by Winter Capital, ETS Strategic Capital, Calega and existing investor Man Capital.
The Gurugram-based company had already raised $26.5 million in this round in September.
CollegeDekho is planning to use the funds for acquisition and to further improve its offerings for students and colleges both within India and abroad by investmenting in products and technology while growing new verticals like ed-fin-tech, student accommodation and coaching for higher education.
Founded in 2015 by Ruchir Arora and Saurabh Jain, CollegeDekho connects prospective students with colleges using its proprietary technology and conversation bot, and offers services like profile building, test preparation, application assistance, university selection and visa assistance.
The firm has hosted 100 million sessions on its website, counselled more than 2 million students and helped almost 1000 colleges with their student recruitments.
