JetLearn, an Amsterdam-based Web 3.0 online academy for primary and secondary school-age children, announced that it has secured €1.2M in a Seed round led by INSEAD Angel Group.
Other notable angel investors, including Humera Afzal, CFO of Soho House and formerly of Backed VC, and Ritu Narayan, founder of Silicon Valley emerging unicorn Zum, backed by Sequoia and Softbank, participated in the round.
The Dutch company plans to use the funds to launch its platform in the UK market.
Abhishek Bahl, founder of JetLearn, comments, “Schools are preparing children for the jobs of today, not for the jobs of tomorrow! Our platform fills this learning gap and provides school-age children from age 6 upwards with a foundation in new-age technologies. JetLearn’s STEM.org accredited program is the World’s first and only Web 3.0 curriculum for the K-12 segment. We already have a strong presence across multiple markets and this funding will allow us to expand in the UK, accelerating the transition to delivering our experiences in Web 3.0, and developing metaverse-native content.”
Hyper-personalised learning experience
Founded by Abhishek Bahl in 2021, JetLearn’s platform provides children between 6 and 16 with a hyper-personalised learning experience – and connects them to the top 1% of educators experienced in teaching Web 3.0, AI, and robotics.
Abhishek Bahl is a former EU General Manager of Silicon Valley AI scale-up AutoGrid. As an alumnus of INSEAD, he holds two patents in Artificial Intelligence and is a frequent guest lecturer at INSEAD.
The platform’s technology platform powers live 1:1 online lessons and trains children for competitive hackathons through its curriculum.
After signing up for a monthly subscription, users can access educators for online live learning, supplemented with assignments and self-learning projects.
Subscribers can access a global community of learners for collaborative learning, workshops, webinars, and hackathons. Further, secondary school students closer to college age can also connect to mentors from top Silicon Valley companies.
“This is the Netflix moment for ed-tech in Europe, and JetLearn is one of the pioneers. The INSEAD Angel Group is proud to partner with Abhishek and JetLearn’s team of passionate educators and operators on the mission of empowering the next generation of creators” says Daan Wilms Van Kersbergen, the Netherlands-based Investment Director and co-ordinator for the INSEAD Angel Group.
