About Leverage Edu

Our Story

Why we exist / Our raison d'etre

Leverage Edu was founded on the vital premise that each of us has the right to uncouple our destiny from that of the country we are born in; in order that we are able to better realise and fulfill our potential.

At Leverage, we believe our potential is independent of our nation’s potential, and that we have the right to separate our trajectory from that of our birthplace. We are the true ‘masters of our fate, the captains of our souls.’ We control and determine our destinies, not our... Read More

“Akshay and team have put in place strong frameworks for building a large, long-term company in this first year of our partnership. The scale of the overseas education opportunity set is even more massive than we initially imagined and the pace at which the team has executed has meant that we are happy to see ourselves co-leading a second round with DSG into an early breakout from fund III.”

I saw this in Akshay in addition to of course the vast opportunity in the area in which he is playing and is a sizeable player. I am excited to help as we build this out to market domination.”

“DSGCP first invested in Leverage Edu and partnered with Akshay a year ago. In that short period, Akshay and his team have demonstrated very strong execution capabilities and have positioned Leverage Edu as a leading emergent higher education and career advisory brand. We are very excited about the next phase of growth as Leverage Edu expands into becoming a full stack service provider and expands operations to more Indian cities.”

Sajith Pai

Announcing Leverage Edu's $6.5m Series A

In 2014 September, as part of his Zero to One book launch promotion campaign, Peter Thiel did an AMA (ask me anything) with Forbes’s subscribers. In that AMA, he was asked about the most important and influential book he had read. Strangely, the book Thiel mentioned wasn’t a book by Rene Girard, the Stanford professor – philosopher who Thiel acknowledges as a big influence, but rather an obscure book called The Sovereign Individual, written in 1997.

Thoughts on our investment in Leverage Edu

Mobility (or lack thereof) and the increased access to opportunities have often had large, and often unseen, consequences on the development of human societies, some of which are still felt globally today.


LeverageEdu, a startup that helps Indian students gain admission into the top global universities, has raised $6.5 million in its growth round of investment as it looks to double down on expansion.


An Indian startup that is bridging this gap on Thursday said it has raised $6.5 million in a new financing round as it looks to scale its platform in the world’s second-largest internet market.
