GetWork, a Gurugram, India-based end-to-end SaaS platform, raised Rs 7 crores in a pre-series A funding round from Samarthya Investment Advisors, NVS Wealth Managers, and Artha Venture Fund.
Other investors in the round include marquee founders and angel investors like Pravin Agarwala (co-founder of Betterplace), Shuchi Kothari (director of Health & Glow and DSP Group Family Office), and Saurabh Garg (co-founder of NoBroker).
The funds will be used to recruit 2,500+ colleges and 12,000+ employers, explore international markets, and expand the GetWork Club.
Rahul Veerwal, Founder of GetWork, says, “Over 42,000 colleges and training schools add 1.2 crore fresh graduates to the working population every year. However, there isn't a single platform that provides specific tools, guidance, and job opportunities to fresh graduates from tier 2 and tier 3 colleges. GetWork's placement platform and GetWork Club focus on solving this massive problem. This funding round brought onboard an exciting set of investors who will help us scale the GetWork platform pan-India over the next 18 months."
Launched in 2019, GetWork currently has 6,500 employers recruiting from the 13 lakh students on the GetWork platform from 1000+ colleges across India.
