Seeders Venture Capital has invested in Bangalore based Eduora, an online social learning platform that’s aimed at changing the online education paradigm.
Founded in March 2011, the company, led by it’s founder Nagarjun Palavalli has been building an online, cloud based platform that combines the social elements of the Internet with the tools offered by a Learning Management System (LMS). Currently in private alpha, the network is expected to launch in late 2011.
“The idea is that traditional Learning Management Systems are dull and un-engaging for students to use. We plan to fix all the broken elements of such systems together and package it in a social network like structure. A central system similar to Facebook or Linked that’s void of private installations. The social network like structure of the network would mean that students and colleges all hold the same hierarchy on the network.
Seeders Venture Capital Pvt. Ltd primarily funds software, mobile, web services and gaming companies that either have a differentiating product or service where Internet is a key enabler. The fund is started by Pallav Nadhani (of Fusioncharts) and Abhishek Rungta (IndusNet) and earlier invested in CarSingh, a portal For Buying/Selling Cars.
