Peakperformer raises $3 million in seed funding

Peakperformer, a leadership and behavioural skills coaching startup, has raised a seed funding of $3 million, led by Sequoia India’s Surge. Other investors that participated in the capital raise include Antler India, Blume Founders Fund, and angel investors from some of the major technology companies.

With this round of funding, “A key focus area for us will be to continuously improve the product and make it easier for our coaches and learners,” Aishwarya Goel, co-founder & CEO, and Nilesh Agarwal, co-founder and CTO, wrote in a blog. 

The Bengaluru-based Peakperformer started its journey in 2020 with an aim to help young managers navigate the challenges of a young and diverse workforce.

After several conversations, it was clear for the founding team that while the benefits of coaching were obvious, only a small segment of the senior leadership had access to it. “We knew that the answer lay in making coaching more accessible and relatable to younger managers, right at the start,” they wrote. 

With support from early customers, leaders, and coaches, Peakperformer is now moving towards its next phase of growth. 

“In this new age of remote work where teams become more diverse, our focus continues to be providing managers with the support and guidance they need to build high-performing teams no matter where they are,” they shared. 

Peakperformer said it’s currently adding fresh content resources on its platform that learners can access on their own to make coaching a continuous learning experience.
