The co-founder of multi-vertical classified business Carousell, Siu Rui Quek, is among the angel investors to have contributed to a $1 million U.S. investment in edtech firm Jackett in a seed round led by Forge Ventures.

Launched at the beginning of 2022, the Singapore-based company offers teachers an AI system and machine-learning tool to automatize the creation and evaluation of customized tests. Jackett also has insights and analytics able to provide more in-depth learning relating to students’ performance over time, helping professors devise tailor-made education programs.

International talent investors Entrepreneur First and Epic Angels Network participated in the funding round, alongside angel investors such as OnLoop co-founder Projjal Ghatak.

“Education has reached an inflexion point where new technologies can help enhance the teaching process, reduce the administrative burden, and ultimately create a better and more personalized learning experience for students, at scale,” said Jackett CEO Charlotte Trudgill.

The latest funding will be used to create new features and expand into further markets. Jackett currently operates in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Uganda, and the Philippines, with more than 50,000 tests on its website able to save around 7,000 hours in administration time, according to the company.
