Bringing an uproar in the education sector, Dehradun based startup Okadmission raises a massive Pre-seed funding
The outbreak of covid-19 has disrupted education worldwide, forcing students to adopt online methods. This unprecedented crisis has led to the evolution of various online coaching institutes and startups. Talking about one, Ok Admission founded by Debjyoti Saha has come to the rescue of students by helping them in making the right career choices before taking admission into various colleges and universities.
Debjyoti, a 23-year-old entrepreneur, founded Ok Admission after sharing his concept with Partho Pratim Haldar, the company’s co-founder. Partho has 8 years of experience in the admissions business, which aided the company’s growth.
At the age of 19 years old, he founded his first company DMG Educational Foundation. Along with this, he started providing admissions counselling to students at the university. Well-known institutions joined them as admissions counsellors and marketing partners, which helped their business to flourish. The business did not succeed since it was based in a physical location and could not reach a large number of students, but it did make a profit.
Originally belonging to West Bengal’s Alipurduar district’s
Falakata village, Debjyoti shifted to Dehradun to pursue a degree in
Agriculture, where he decided he will work towards serving society. For the
same, he planned to construct an Agrotech setup for this purpose, but it fell
through during the conceptualization stage. This was the very first time he
entered the world of entrepreneurship.
Having the same vision as Steve Jobs, of never giving up, he kept on creating ideas and successfully established OkAdmission. It is an ed-tech company, the world’s first and only technology-driven career counselling and admissions assistance company.
The company provides a lot of features in the online form they help students find colleges and universities, financing services. They have a hostel directory where students may book hostels directly from the site. So, from admission to finance, they have everything under one roof.
They have raised 3 million rupees in pre-seed funding from a reputable investor for their firm. They want their company to dominate the education industry in the future, and they plan to employ over a thousand people and enroll one lakh pupils with their support by 2024.
If you recently graduated from high school or know someone who has, you can tell them about OkAdmission and how helpful it is for them to find the proper career with the support of professionals. With Debjyoti’s vast knowledge, one can undoubtedly gain admission to one of the greatest institutions and universities and flourish by realising one’s ambitions.
