Michael and Susan Dell Foundation-backed Education Catalyst Fund makes two bets

Education Catalyst Fund, which is managed by global philanthropic organisation Michael and Susan Dell Foundation-backed CBA Capital, has made two more investments in the education space.

The fund invested in Bengaluru-based Kopykitab and Noida-based Buddy4Study to take the number of its portfolio firms to three, it said in a statement.

Early this week, VCCircle first reported that the fund made its debut investment in Delhi-headquartered virtual reality startup Simulanis. Founded in 2013, Simulanis initially offered skilling programmes for engineering students via computer-based modules. It went on to offer work environment simulations to train employees besides incorporating virtual and augmented reality into its offerings in 2015
