EduRaft Pvt Ltd, which runs Eduraft.com has raised $61,000 (Rs 33 lakh) in angel funding from an alumni group from IIM-Kozhikode and Anna University, Chennai, reports techcircle.

Started in June 2012 by Aarthi Ramasubramanian, Sharath Loganathan and Thirukumaran Nagarajan, EduRaft provides information of schools, tuition, sports , hobby classes, extracurricular and co-curricular activities and lists over 20,000 schools. Parents can search for schools, tuition, and other related activities on the site by selecting their preferred city. Currently, EduRaft operates in Mumbai, Suburban Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Chennai. Although the site states that it lists extracurricular activities, we couldn't find any activities when we checked for activities in Navi Mumbai.
