Edtech startup Questt raises $ 6.75 million in Series A.

The Edtech platform Questt raised $ 6.75 million in a Series A round led by Celesta Capital and Premji Invest. Existing funders such as AET Fund, Titan Capital, First Check and MarsShot Ventures have also got involved, with Chiratae Ventures increasing its stake.

The new round comes just seven months after the Gurugram-based startup bagged $ 1.35 million in its Chiratae Ventures-led seed round this March. The fresh capital will be used to expand its user base and technical capabilities, Questt said in a statement.

The startup was founded in 2019 by Akhil Singh, Mohsin and Rohit Pande as Realearning.in, an AI-based solution for handwritten answer sheets.

With over two lakh students and 10,000 teachers on the platform, Questt is a homework and assessment app that gamifies homework for students and generates deep insights into students’ learning patterns.

Currently aimed at students in grades 1-12, the platform also generates remarkable insights into concepts, cognitive skills, and levels of difficulty that help form cohorts of students with similar learning abilities and enable post-school learning.

According to Singh, Questt is targeting over 3 million students by March 2022. As of now, the feature is free to everyone, but a subscription will likely be offered for the next three to four months to monetize the platform.

While a handful of companies offer homework and assessment as a feature, there are very few startups that compete directly with Questt.
