Singapore-based Kalpha, an edtech startup that focuses on sharing skills, experiences and knowledge, has received a “six-figure sum” in funding from Nest Tech, a VC fund focusing on seed-stage technology startups.

The investment will be used to grow the business, expand the team, and for marketing.

Founded by Jack Soh and Jaden Teo, Kalpha is a mobile app that enables individuals to discover, connect and meet up to learn and share skills, experiences, and knowledge on a 1-to-1 basis. According to the startup, sharing sessions are designed to be time-flexible and budget-friendly.

The app is available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

This is as much a strategic partnership as it is an investment, and we will work closely with Kalpha to grow their business and take it international,” said Soe Moe Kyaw Oo, Founding Partner of Nest Tech.
