Sequoia India, Lightspeed India and Greenoaks Co-Investment in Apna.co
Gunderson Dettmer represented clients Sequoia India, Lightspeed India and Greenoaks as co-investors in the $12.5 million Series B financing of Apna.co, a vertical professional networking platform.
In the announcement of the transaction, Partner at Lightspeed India Vaibhav Agrawal said, “Apna has taken a jobs-centric approach to upskilling that we are very excited about. Lack of accountability has been the core issue with current skill / vocational learning alternatives for grey and blue-collar workers. Apna has turned the problem on its head by creating net-positive job outcomes for anyone who chooses to upskill on the platform.”
The Gunderson deal team was led by Jonathan Pentzien and included David He and Kinnari Sahita.
