India’s leading early learning ed-tech platform Creative Galileo today announced it has raised $7.5 million in a Series A funding round led by Kalaari Capital in participation with Affirma Capital, East Ventures, Valiant Employee Investment Fund, and other angel investors.

This brings Creative Galileo’s total funding to $10 million, including a pre-series A round of $ 2.5 million announced in October last year.

With over 7 million downloads, the company will use the newly infused funds to scale up, accelerate hiring across the teams in multiple geographies, introduce regional languages and further strengthen the research and development of the platform.

Creative Galileo was founded in July 2020 by Prerna A Jhunjhunwala and Nikhil Naik. As the country’s first-of-its-kind character-based early learning platform for kids aged 3-10. The company has forged over 20 partnerships with the country’s top content studios in just over a year.

With extensive plans to expand in Southeast Asia, Creative Galileo recently started its foray with international alliances such as EBS Korea, a leading educational content specialist broadcasting company.

Commenting on the funding, Prerna A Jhunjhunwala, Founder, Creative Galileo, said, “We are excited to bring our new partners on board. In the last year, we have successfully built and provided millions of children access to high-quality content in our Digital and Educational Equality mission. We want to enable bespoke learning for children across the globe through their favorite characters to strengthen their foundation during their early years, which will also help develop and strengthen critical thinking, confidence, cognitive skills, and emotional intelligence.”

“Our soon-to-be ‘multilingual’ platform will become the largest universe of kids’ characters-driven learning platform with a curriculum designed by experts to meet the foundational learning requirements”, Prerna added.

Speaking on the investment in Creative Galileo, Vani Kola, Managing Director, Kalaari Capital, says, “We are excited to strengthen our partnership with Prerna and Nikhil as they continue their journey of transforming learning experiences for children across the globe. In the last six months, they have achieved strong growth with low marketing spending. Creative Galileo has also consistently ranked among the top educational apps on India’s play store – the only early learning app to achieve this distinction. This is a testament to the founders’ relentless focus and strong execution.”

“We are glad to welcome Creative Galileo into East Ventures’ network and support them in strengthening the education ecosystem in the region. We believe the approach of Creative Galileo will provide fun and exciting learning experiences, and we are looking forward to experiencing more innovation from the team,” Koh Wai Kit, Managing Partner of East Ventures further added.
