Seekho – Jobtech platform for youth

The pandemic created multiple opportunities in the edtech sector. Hence many startups emerged into the sector. While some of them are focusing on school children, some others focus on job aspirants. Here is a startup, Seekho, a video-first micro-learning platform. The startup emerged to help youth improve their skills.

Divya Jain, Arihant Jain, and Ajeet Singh Kushwaha are the founders of Seekho. Divya Jain says that the pandemic changed the lives of many students. Seekho is her second venture. Her first venture was Safeducate.

Divya pursued her master’s degree from Cambridge University, UK. She worked in investment banking at Citigroup. She realized that there was a huge gap between the CV of the candidate and the job description of recruiters. In addition to that, companies are also struggling to hire the right candidate for the right job.

Seekho aims to bridge the gap. The startup offers mentorship and learning. Youth can use all these on a single platform. It also provides earning opportunities to them.

The startup mainly focused on users, mentors, corporates. The founders claim that Seekho is the only jobtech startup that brings all these stakeholders on a single platform.
