Vlurn.com, a platform for online courses, has raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding from Accord Group managing director and chief executive officer Vidyadhar Sarfare.

The platform, which offers about 50 different online courses, will use the funds to hire talent, development of its mobile app, creating studio infrastructure and for the marketing and promotion of the courses.

Vlurn currently has about 2,000 registered users who have undertaken more than 5000 hours of training in various courses, the company said in a statement.

“We feel that there are a lot of competitive niches in the overall learning market and we backed VlurN to focus on offering video-based training of some top notch trainers in India. This is a very large target market with multiple streams and online trainings are at an unprecedented inflection point, given the rapid rise in internet penetration and mobile phone usage," said Vidyadhar Sarafare, MD & CEO.

Accord Group is a Pune-based company with a background in IT and healthcare businesses.
