Our Story

We are a team of entrepreneurs and dreamers, who all struggled with securing a global education for ourselves. We learned the hard way – there is a huge gap between being academically ready and financially ready to obtain the education of our dreams.

The EduFund team

We sat down together and dreamed up EduFund as a solution to help parents secure their child’s future. It is a roadmap for parents to plan their child’s education journey, by considering the true costs of education. EduFund was designed with our clients, not just for them. We worked with over 500 parents, and their kids to create an app that fits the needs of every parent, and their child.

Education is one of the greatest gifts you can receive. It should be challenging - it should be inspirational - but it shouldn’t be hard to access.

Our purpose is simple - enable Indian parents and empower Indian students. Whether that is studying abroad or finding the right college here in India, we are here to help.
