PaGaLGuY’s Prepathon – A learning app for competitive exams, has raised an undisclosed amount in its pre-series A round from Blume ventures.

The funds will be used to add another 50 courses to the Prepathon stable, which presently has courses in banking, government, management and engineering exams.

Launched in August 2015, Prepathon creates a virtual classroom for students preparing for competitive exams.

Allwin Agnel, a MBA Graduate from the Wharton School, founded PaGaLGuY in 2002. He said, “Technology that allows us to personalize learning at scale using bots will be one of the biggest drivers of innovation in the educational space. Our team is focused on building solutions that will allow every student to learn better.”
