GTAN Startup of the Year Winner, Andela, backed by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

A huge congratulations to GTAN Investee Andela, who has raised $24M in a round led by Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan’s fund, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and GV, formerly Google Ventures.

This is big news for Andela, who won GTAN Startup of the Year 2015 at last year’s annual Pauli Awards.

“Knowing that this is Mark and Priscilla’s first lead investment is humbling but also exciting,” said Jeremy Johnson, CEO of Andela. “It feels like a huge responsibility, but also an opportunity to work with one of the most impactful technologists of our generation.”
