Unibuddy Secures $5M in Series A Funding

unibuddyUnibuddy, a London, UK-based edtech startup, secured $5m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Fred Destin of Stride VC.

The company intends to use the funds to:

  • grow the team, which currently spans 4 continents,
  • focus on US expansion, and
  • create new products.

Led by CEO Diego Fanara, Unibuddy is an edtech peer-to-peer company which allows students to find where they belong through sharing their experiences and universities to recruit their best-fit students. A widget on an institution website allows prospects and ambassadors to chat and foster a sense of belonging – even before applying. The startup, which is working with over 150 institutions worldwide, recently announced a partnership with the UK Admissions Service, UCAS.
