Unacademy on Friday said Dragoneer Investment Group and tech entrepreneur Bhavin Turakhia together invested $10 million as part of the edtech platform’s recent $440 funding round.

Earlier this month, Unacademy had announced raising $440 million in funding, led by Temasek and super pro-rata participation from General Atlantic, Tiger Global, and Softbank Vision Fund. The round valued the edtech platform at $3.44 billion (about Rs 25,572 crore).

“…Dragoneer Investment Group and tech entrepreneur Bhavin Turakhia have invested in the company’s Series H round, through a mix of primary and secondary transactions. Dragoneer, and Turakhia together have invested $10 million of the $440 million raised,” a statement said on Friday. Dragoneer Investment Group first invested in Unacademy in November 2020.

The round had also saw participation from Mirae Asset, Aroa Ventures (the family office of OYO Founder Ritesh Agarwal), and Zomato co-founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal said.

Unacademy’s $3.44 billion valuation is a 70% surge from its valuation during the previous fundraise in January 2021, the statement said.
