Medial App, a professional social media platform, has raised $120,000 in a pre-seed funding round. The round was led by FirstCheque VC and saw participation from notable angels from Bangalore, Mumbai, and the US including names like Nayan Jadeja, Rohitashwa Choudhary, Ankit Aggarwal, Radhakrishnan Ramachandran, and others.   

Founded and led by Niket Raj Dwivedi, Aishwarya Raj Pandey, Prateek Kaien, and Harsh Dwivedi, the platform wants to reshape the professional social networking landscape by centering its offerings around professionals’ real learning, it added in its statement. 

Sharing his mission, Niket Raj Dwivedi, founder and CEO of Medial App said, “Medial is designed to be a meaningful content and consumption-led professional network instead of a thoughtless connection-led network. We are working towards creating a world-class company-profiling suite and a job board which is responsive within a strict timeline so that candidates are not left hanging after applying to jobs, and allowing companies to showcase themselves better to prospective talent.”   

Medial App enjoys a beta-stage user base of over 5,000 users and is set for an official launch by the end of January 2024. The platform aims to evolve into the go-to professional social platform for growth-driven individuals within the start-up/tech ecosystem, gradually expanding its horizons to accommodate more profiles and industries.   

Prateek Agarwal from FirstCheque remarked, “Niket and the team have the right mix to solve the social media problems of today. They want to purify the experience by helping people read unique content and also share their perspectives without the fear of being judged.”  

The company intends to devote the raised capital primarily to fuel product development, user acquisition, and testing of core app features, the start-up added. 

Medial App is a professional social media platform tailored for the start-up ecosystem. With a content and community-led approach, it aims to create a decluttered space for professionals across domains such as product, tech, UI/UX, and infrastructure, among others. With its professionals-first algorithm, the app promotes meaningful content in a non-intrusive manner, enabling learning and growth for its community.
