Klas, a Nigerian Edutech platform that allows anyone to set up an online school and deliver live classes, has raised $130,000 angel round to expand online teaching platform.
The startup said the new funding will enable it to double down on platform innovation and powering online schools globally as it furthers its mission to unlock the power of knowledge sharing.
The funding round saw investment from Tola Adesanmi (Spleet), Odunayo Eweniyi (Piggyvest), Nadayar Enegesi (Eden life), Njoku Emmanuel (Lazerpay), Leonard Stiegeler (Jumia), Voltron Capital, Cabal Fund, Velocity Digital, HoaQ, and other notable angels.
Nathan Nwachuku, the CEO and co-founder of Klas likened the platform to Shopify for online teaching. He said, “Klas is a platform that allows anyone to start an online school and deliver live lessons. Think of Klas as Shopify for online teaching.
“Our software supports everything you need to teach online, including: payments, scheduling, community, community, analytics and video conferencing.”
