Leap is a global study abroad platform headquartered in San Francisco and Bangalore. Leap today has completely digitized the journey of study abroad & is helping students with education financing, cross-border fintech products, guidance on admission, visas, and test preparation. Leap has also developed an online community of over half a million study abroad aspirants who leverage this platform to network and communicate about all things study abroad.
India is the second-largest market globally for overseas enrolment, and in just a decade higher education enrolments are up by 8 million. This presents a huge opportunity in an otherwise fragmented landscape. We are addressing this huge opportunity through our end-to-end tech platform and a community-first approach.
We are backed by globally renowned investors like Jungle Ventures, Sequoia Capital India, and Owl Ventures and to date have raised $22.5 million over two rounds of funding post our inception in late 2019. The founders, Arnav Kumar and Vaibhav Singh have past experience in building and investing in successful companies. The present team includes Alumni of top Schools, global firms (Mckinsey, DeutscheBank, HSBC, CitiBank, SAIF Partners), and other top internet & high-growth companies (CapitalFloat, Meesho, Incred, Drip Capital & Flipkart).
