Klub looks to double headcount, rolls out L&D vertical

Revenue-based financing platform Klub is looking to double its team by the end of this year.

The company is planning to hire across verticals including data, business development, marketing, engineering, product, operations and people development, across geographies.

Earlier this year, the firm also introduced a learning and development centre of excellence (CoE) to help accelerate career growth for its workforce.

“Coming from a fintech, investment banking and venture capital background, we have converged into a team of 100 individuals driven to build debt products that empower digital businesses across the globe. As a company, we have always believed in accelerating growth of our employees and building blocks of cultural tenets like introducing L&D CoE. As we grow exponentially, we want to keep the same momentum and hire the best talent across geographies to create a platform that revolutionises the funding ecosystem in our country,” Ishita Verma, co-founder and COO at Klub, told ET.

The company has been strengthening its senior management with leadership appointments, including that of Prashant Bhadauria as senior VP - tech, product and data. He previously worked at ZestMoney. It also brought on board Sudharsan Venkatakrishnan as VP - embedded lending and Subhashish Bhadra as director - capital platform, in the course of the last six months.

The firm hosts regular learning sessions every Friday. These include workshops on topics from crisis management to managing one's calendar.

It raised $20 million in seed funding from Sequoia Capital India's Surge, US-based Alter Global, Japan-based GMO VenturePartners, and 9Unicorns in 2021. Since its inception, the firm has facilitated over 600 investments in 300+ brands.
