GradTrain, a Jerusalem, Israel-based curated marketplace for studying abroad, closed a $500k seed financing round.
The round was led by private investors.
The company will use the funds to scale its global platform.
Co-founded by Jacob Bacon, Chief Executive Officer, and Lital Helman (S.J.D.), Chief Operating Officer, GradTrain provides a platform that offers predictive algorithms for assessing chances of acceptance to US universities and online mentoring for international students. Based on big-data analytics, its admissions predictor leverages machine learning to assess prospective students’ chances of acceptance to hundreds of US universities and provides suggestions on which schools are right for the students.
The platform currently serves users from over 150 countries and is also available via Android and iOS apps.
