Founded by Rohit Garg and Sourabh Kaushik, Tealfeed is building a knowledge sharing platform that keeps people’s feed informative, connects people of similar interests, empowers creators by monetizing their content, and helps them connect with brands for paid projects.
Rohit Garg, Co-founder and CEO of Tealfeed, said “There’s been a societal shift in consciousness towards having control over how people spend their time online, and being their own boss. People see creators doing what they love for a living and aspire to follow that path. We are on a mission to turn their dreams into an ambitious career, empowering them with content monetisation tools and a platform to foster lasting communities.”
Launched four months ago, Tealfeed already has 5,000+ global creators actively creating content in the fields of technology, startups, marketing, leadership, design etc. They have been witnessing a 60% MoM growth in the number of users and are planning to integrate creators-centric features in the coming months.
Currently working in an article-only mode, Tealfeed provides its users an option to customise their feed based on their interests and follow their favorite creators to learn from them.
Regarding the future plans of Tealfeed for creators, Sourabh shared, “We would soon be introducing the messaging feature to connect users and creators that would be followed by the integration of videos and audio-form content. By the end of this year, we are planning to launch monetisation on the platform to recognise and reward the efforts that creators make to create quality content.”
The Tealfeed team plans on scaling their engineering team through these funds to assist their creators in the publishing process and to take a step forward towards achieving their vision of empowering the creators and building a truly-sustainable knowledge sharing community.
Amit Kumar, Senior Partner, ah! Ventures said, “India has witnessed a digital revolution in the past few years and leading the charge are homegrown startups building products for the Indian and global markets. Tealfeed’s vision of building an Indian platform for empowering creators globally aligns with ah! Venture’s goal of strengthening India’s stronghold in the global startup ecosystem.”
