Village Capital seeds Simulanis to boost job-readiness in India

Delhi-based startup Simulanis uses gaming tools and virtual reality to train engineering students for the workforce.

Village Capital led a group of angel investors to provide an undisclosed amount of seed capital.

India is in need of 120 million more skilled workers in the next five years across two dozen economic sectors, says VilCap’s Victoria Fram.

Simulanis, which partners with corporations to boost worker preparedness, is supporting more than 1,000 workers in the pharmaceutical, education, automotive and other sectors.

Launched in 2013 by Raman Talwar, Simulanis participated in VilCap’s Education India program last year and was selected for investment by its peer entrepreneurs. VilCap has made more than 75 early-stage investments in 15 countries.
