Skills Caravan, a Delhi-based SaaS B2B platform, has raised an undisclosed sum from angel investors. Founded by Sarita Chand in 2022, the start-up provides a Learning as a Service platform that uses AI to deliver individualised educational resources, optimising learning roadmaps for organizations, and thereby enhancing employee potential and job performance.

Before Skills Caravan, Chand co-founded EduPristine, a venture aimed at bridging the skills gap among professionals, that subsequently secured Series A and B funding from Accel Partners and Kaizen Private Equity. EduPristine was acquired by Adtalem Global Education, a Fortune 1000-listed US-based company.

The funding round saw contributions from notable figures such as Abhishek Poddar, Country Head of Macquarie Group, Paras Berwala, Head of TMT and EDtech at Investec India, and Deep Bajaj, Co-founder of Sirona.

Delighted with the fundraising, Sarita Chand, Co-Founder, of Skills Caravan said, “The funding will be channeled towards expanding Skills Caravan's operations in the United States. We have achieved product-market fit and profitability with the solutions already implemented by numerous listed companies in India.”

Mohan Sawhney, the Associate Dean for Digital Innovation at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management stated, “Skills Caravan brings together everything that employees need to learn to be more effective in their jobs in one place, and links learning to employee job performance. I believe strongly in the mission and the platform that Sarita has created.”
