Gradbase Limited (Gradbase) is an EdTech start-up that enables anyone, anywhere to effortlessly verify the authenticity of personal qualifications, and enables the holders of these qualifications to keep them all in one place. Its mission is to enable individuals to store their qualifications digitally, and effortlessly share trustworthy, digital CVs that employers can easily understand.
In today’s global job market, verifying the authenticity of personal qualifications is a challenge for employers, recruiters and regulators alike. There is no existing, standardised set of procedures to do the job. The continued use of traditional methods such as telephone, post and email is slow, inefficient and outdated, increasing verification times and prices, reducing accuracy, and increasing the chances of fraud.
Gradbase aims to drastically reduce the cost, time and friction associated with such verifications by harnessing blockchain technology. Gradbase has previously raised seed funding which has enabled:
· The development of a fully-functioning, commercialised software product.
· The execution of early pilots and partnerships with EU and UAE universities, professional institutions and recruitment companies.
· Early revenue generation
Gradbase is now raising further capital to improve the technical offering and scale the business commercially. The total amount of capital raised will be between £200.000 and £500.000, for a maximum of 20% equity in Gradbase Limited.
