San Francisco, California – InstaEDU, a tutoring startup that allows any student to connect with a subject expert from a top university over video chat in a matter of minutes has raised $1.1 million of seed funding from The Social+Capital Partnership and angel investors namely Dylan Smith, Bobby Yazdani, Todd Bradley, and August Capital co-founder and general partner John Johnston.

Johnston is the uncle of the InstaEDU co-founders Alison and Dan Johnston. Mamoon Hamid of The Social+Capital Partnership will be joining its board of directors as part of the funding deal.

“This is a group of individuals that has a ton of knowledge, spends a large amount of time online, and generally enjoys helping others,” said Dan Johnston, COO and cofounder. “As a result, InstaEDU can often match a student with a qualified expert in under a minute. The ability to connect with an MIT math major the moment you get stuck on your calculus assignment is truly a game changer.”
