announcing our $1m fundraise
here's the latest on our journey 🏃♀️
tldr: our existing lead investor enzia ventures led the latest round along with participation from artha ventures, ghazal alagh (mamaearth), alok mittal (indifi), atul goel (e-city ventures), vatsal singhal (ultrahuman), ashwini asokan (mad street den), anirudh singla (pepper content), swati mohan (ex-cmo netflix) and shrishti sahu (hustle hard ventures). more women on the cap table? hell yeah.
this new round comes 12 months after our last round of $810,000. we had earlier raised $380,000 as part of our seed round in 2020, taking our total raise till date to $2.2 million.
we’re a revenue-first company since day 1, so this raise gives us a comfortable runway to build the mission for the coming few (read: many) years.
a quick recap
leap.club is a professional network for women with a bold mission - more women in leadership roles. we started in may 2020 with the goal of building a platform that helps women live their best social professional lives. we believe there are 3 critical factors in this journey -
network and connections
upskilling via l&d
career moves via talent solutions or jobs
leap.club enables women to discover and connect with other women, upskill via courses, workshops, masterclasses/ huddles, and very soon discover the best places to work at and apply for jobs.
we believe that next-gen networks will be smaller, focused and purpose-driven, and we’re already seeing this play out with companies like chief that just raised $100 mil in the US.
where we are today
we’re currently at 10,000+ paying members across 2000+ companies, 200+ cities, 15+ countries. we’re a super active platform on which our members expand their network, make career moves, scope out partnerships, build an audience, make new friends and (very soon) will apply for top jobs.
but don’t just take our word for it! let the numbers do the talking:
82,797 1:1 connections via our app and website in the last 3 months
197 active micro-communities
54,308 messages in these micro-communities in the last 3 months
5,459 posts on our feed in the last 3 months
23 paid courses with 11.2% total member participation of the user base
86 events, experiences, and huddles in the last 3 months
10+ cr projected revenue in fy 2022-23
our goal is 100,000 members and 100 crores of revenue in the next 3 years. by 2028, we want to be a global platform with 1 mil+ users (yes, there ARE that many women who’d invest in their professional growth).
in the coming decade, we
aim to be will be the go-to platform for women across the world to grow their network, upskill, and apply for jobs.
