IndiaCollegeSearch Secures Seed Funding From VAS Capital
IAN (Indian Angel Network) incubated startup IndiaCollegeSearch.com has raised INR 5.8 million seed funding from VAS Capital.
Launched in October 2010, IndiaCollegeSearch.com is helps students find a college (currently, engineering colleges only). The site is like a local search engine for college search related queries (one can filter colleges on locations/courses offered/admission fee/admission criteria etc).
Given that Indians are often confused about education, a service that helps them filter information will add value and the site has done a great bit of SEO to ensure that they don’t lose out on queries that often rule Google.
Cofounder, Anirudh Motwani shares some of the key roadmaps for the portal
- Replace the current prototype with an improved website which incorporates all colleges and courses in India.
- New website will be live by December with over 3000 MBA & Engg colleges – we will add more as we go along
- Granular info like Placement, Infrastructure, Faculty along with Cut-offs and in-depth college reviews
As far as the business model is concerned, IndiaCollegeSearch will focus on bringing targeted traffic and monetize the same via advertising.
