(Sorry, this news is being posted here a little late; I was on vacation when this news broke, and decided that a late update is better than no update at all.)
Pune-based Function Space, an online “social” platform for learning science and maths has recently raised seed funding from Nexus Venture Partners.
Function Space is trying to make STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education fun and engaging, something that is seriously been missing from our education system
Function Space, already offers a strong community consisting of users from over 190 countries, including students, professors and researchers from MIT, Stanford, University of California, Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses, Indian Institute of Technology campuses, Indian Institute of Science and other prestigious institutions.
The funding will be used for expansion: of their content, their tools, and their customer reach.
Function Space was founded in 2013 by Adit Gupta, Sakshi Majmudar and Sumit Maniyar.
Note, this makes NexusVP the most Pune-friendly venture capital firm with 9 investments in Pune.
