The founding members are from companies like Uber, Bain & Co, Unilever, American Express, Sequoia, NDTV, Google, Tinder, and Wipro to name a few.
leap.club raised $380,000 as part of the seed round from top angels and funds in India including Whiteboard Capital, Sequoia India Scout fund, Titan Capital, First Cheque, Artha India Ventures and more.
Let the numbers speak
What started with 30 founding members in May 2020 has become a 700+ strong member community in the span of seven months. They onboard only a limited number of members each month to ensure that they learn from feedback, better the product and each member wins.
They recently accelerated the on-boarding to add 300+ new members in the last two months, due to an overwhelming response on the wait-list which has 7,500+ members organically. All of this, with zero customer acquisition costs.
18% of their members have 3-6 years of experience. 26% have 6-9 years of experience and 23% come with 12+ years of experience. Women with 18-20 years have also joined as driving other young leaders is what they thrive on!
The members are carefully curated to enable interesting diversity on the platform for members to learn and grow. They have 80% professionals and 20% founders in the mix. Around 10% of new members every month are international ones, expanding the horizons and opportunities for the community.
Their member churn is just 3% since launch and member NPS is very high. leap.club considers its members its raison d’être and plans to make its platform bigger and better for them with time.
Both the founders, Ragini Das and Anand Sinha, are former early Zomato team members. They have experience with launching and expanding businesses internationally, so it is only a matter of time before leap.club goes global. Anand spent almost five years at Zomato and served as the Global Head for Zomato Gold, while Ragini was the Head of International Expansion for Zomato Gold and was with the food tech unicorn for six years.
Because they believe that creating women leaders is a $12 trillion economic opportunity and a professional network should help them build a powerful network, grow professionally, and interact with industry leaders. It is neither a social charity nor an organisation that alienates men.
Superconnections a.k.a smart, 1:1 connections which allow you to connect/meet with other members, offer endless possibilities and play a pivotal role in networking. Members have gone on to find jobs, co-founders, investors and partners through the network.
Exec coaching in a first-of-its-kind managed marketplace format with 60+ of India’s top coaches and trainers. Members can book free chemistry sessions and upon selecting their coach, get 1:1 coaching sessions at exclusive member rates.
The platform also curates the best reading content for its members basis their goals and organises moderated discussions with industry leaders, fireside conversations, and skill-sharpening workshops. They host one masterclass/huddle every week—intimate, candid sessions, left of the usual webinars. Past speakers have included Mukesh Bansal, Ankur Warikoo, Mohit Bhatnagar, Abanti Sankaranarayanan.
As they step into their ninth month, the journey has been action packed to say the least. They launched their mobile app on November 1, making the experience more seamless for members. The superconnections have been growing by leaps (almost 1,200+), exec coaching sessions are being booked, and members are actively forming micro communities themselves.
To host group-learning sessions, and add jobs. leap.club is all about the powerful professional revolution that women leaders need and is a firm believer in the fact that the time has come for them to build the table, and not merely take a seat.
