Medial, an ‘alternative professional social media platform’ has raised an undisclosed amount of funding in its pre-seed round from Firstcheque and others. Founded by Niket Raj Dwivedi, Aishwarya Raj Pandey, Harsh Dwivedi and Prateek Kaien, Medial aims to build a professional social media platform which solves for attention on one single platform and democratise employee voices along with bringing back the “social media tangent” back in this space.
“We’re glad to have the support of our investors in our vision of making a truly global social media platform from India. The professional social media space reels from redundant activities, lack of transparency and fragmentation. Medial aims to solve all of that and more in the coming months”, said Niket Raj Dwivedi, CEO of Medial.
Prateek Agarwal from FirstCheque said “Niket and team have the right mix to solve the social media problems of today. They want to purify the experience by helping people read only unique content and also share their perspectives without the fear of being judged.”
Medial plans to launch its app by August end and is based out of Bangalore.
