CENTA, India’s teacher accreditation platform, has announced a funding round of $1 million, receiving support from investors including Omidyar Network, Discovery Assets, Pi Ventures LLP, and 3i Partners.
CENTA will use the $1 million funding to develop “Teaching as a Service” (TaaS) offering. TaaS seeks to provide on-demand teaching services to national and international educational institutions as well as support state and national governments.
“We are making teaching a top-of-the-agenda item for everyone, and in this fundraising effort, we’ve aimed to include representation from a diverse spectrum of sectors. This funding represents a vote of confidence in our mission and underscores the power of teachers as both catalysts of social impact and engines of economic growth,” says Ramya Venkataraman, founder and CEO of CENTA.
