Habbit, an interactive online learning platform for new-age digital skills and hobbies, has raised $320,000 in a pre-seed round led by Ashok Goyal, ex-Supervisory Board Member, Sanjeev Goenka Group; ex-Managing Director, Philips Carbon Black; and ex-President, KEC International, with a slew of well-known angel investors.

Rajinder Mohan, Founder and CEO of RT Vision Technologies and Bitcomm Technologies; Gaurav Vij, Regional Head, East, Sanctum Wealth Management; Geeta Ahluwalia, Founder, Aanchal Apparels Private Limited; and Kunal Ojha S/O Vijay Ojha, Chairman, Techno Relief Group were among the angel investors who participated in the round.

Habbit is an experiential learning platform that connects enthusiastic mentors and learners through live mentorship, engaging learning experiences, and community development. It was founded in September 2020 by BITS Pilani alumni Somnath Sandeep and Raghav Goyal.

Speaking about the new development, Somnath Sandeep, Co-Founder, Habbit, said “In a world full of content and consumption, what is scarce is engagement and interaction through live mentorship and community. We have seen increasing validation for our business model and overwhelming adoption from our learners to immerse themselves in our live learning experience and communities, especially college students, working professionals and homemakers.”
