Ex-Twitter India Head’s Startup to Create Metaverse of Education

Invact Metaversity, founded by former Twitter India head Manish Maheshwari, on Monday announced it has received $5 million in funding led by Antler India. Maheshwari said the startup will use the funds to build a metaverse of education and expand globally.

Invact Metaversity is a platform built at the intersection of education and Web 3.0.

Founded by Maheshwari and Tanay Pratap, it provides employability-focused training to help the workforce realign with the digital world and secure themselves jobs in high-growth tech companies.

“We will use this investment to bolster the product and technology team for the Metaversity platform, build a virtual-first curriculum and expand into Europe and the US,” said Maheshwari.
