Jackett seed funding



Kindrik Partners advised edtech startup Jackett on its US$1 million seed funding round led by Forge Ventures. Entrepreneur First, Epic Angels Network, Carousell co-founder Siu Rui Quek, and OnLoop co-founder Projjal Ghatak also participated.

Charlotte Trudgill and Rachiket Arya started Jackett after realising that technology could enhance the teaching process, reduce the administrative burden on teachers, and create a more personalised experience for students. Jackett lets teachers scan and digitise questions, create personalised assessments using the platform’s library, and auto-grade students’ answers using AI. It also uses smart analytics to provide a deeper understanding of student performance over time.

Jackett plans to use the capital to improve its operating system and make its platform available to more teachers and education institutions in emerging markets.

Partner Chris Wilson says:

“Jackett has gone from strength to strength in its short history and this early involvement from prominent investors shows they have great potential going forward. We look forward to seeing them continue to help teachers deliver the best possible education to their students.”
