The company will use the fresh capital to fuel growth and make significant investments to its core AI-based technology and product stack.

Kavita Mehta, Founder and CEO, Caymus, said, “Today there are many online platforms that bring instructional content from universities and organizations to learners’ personal space, allowing them to upskill while working. Such players have cracked open the ed tech market in a big way. Now, however, there is mass confusion over which courses to opt for.
