E-learning startup Codelearn Learning Pvt Ltd has raised $150,000
from France-based early-stage investor Kima Ventures, reported The Times of
India. The company has been founded by IIT
Kanpur alumnus Hemanth Haridas and IIT Madras alumnus Ashish Sharma. It offers a
platform which teaches programming by building applications than teaching the
syntax of a programming language through a variety of interactive web-based
courses.

The investment will be used to launch new courses and to
expand its two-member team. It presently offers free courses for registered
users, will also look at a subscription model for advanced programming courses,
said Ashish Sharma, co-founder of Codelearn.

The company provides tutorials and an in-browser app
development environment on its website on a need-to know basis rather than the
traditional chapter model. It provides information only about what is needed
during a specific course and ignores all the smaller level details.

Founded in 2010 by Israel-based Jeremie Berrebi and
Paris-based entrepreneur Xavier Niel, Kima generally invests $150,000 and has
invested in startups from 17 countries. The firm claims that it invests in a
startup in 2 to 4 weeks, unlike conventional venture funds which takes 3 to 6
months to invest.
