Online Engineering Entrance Preparation Startup Embibe Secures $4 Mn Funding

Embibe, an online test preparation portal for engineering entrance, has secured $4 mn funding from Kalaari Capital and Lightbox ventures.

The startup was founded by Aditi Avasthi in 2012.

On Embibe, you can prepare for JEE, CET/ PMT. Courses cost Rs 11,999 upwards. The course content is quite deep. It’s got real exam questions, chapter wise tests, over 3000 videos and a few other useful features like a feedback center.


If you are a sucker for group study, you can invite your friends to study with you as well! If during a test, you get an answer wrong, you can revise the topic or bookmark it to revise later.

It is payment integrated, so you can buy the course online. There’s a subject map, which helps you keep track of the areas you’ve covered. Based on your usage, it also tells you which subject you need to focus on.

I found the platform quite useful and easy to study on. But of course, without the fear of PC Thomas (those who’ve cleared Engineering entrance in Kerala will know), its hard for people like me to clear the entrance!
