Hooray to IHUB Kyiv residents – the awesome team of Preply.com! Kirill Bigai Dmytro Voloshyn Sergey Lukyanov & team.

Startup Preply, which has built an online marketplace  has closed a $1.3 million seed round. It supports booking of both in-person lessons in a chosen location and also remote tutoring, via a video chat.

Investors in Preply’s seed round include Arthur Kosten (ex-CMO at Booking.com), Polish VC RTAventures, and founder & CEO of DocPlanner, Mariusz Gralewski.

The team launched its tutoring marketplace back in April 2013, before going through the TechStars Berlin program. It’s currently operating in five markets: Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Mexico and Brazil, and is prepping to launch in three more: Germany, UK, and Spain — using the new financing to fund this international expansion.
