Online education solutions start-up  Aurus Network is looking to raise second round of venture capital funds of around $3-4 million (Rs 18-24 crore). As per a report by Economic Times online, citing unnamed sources aware of the development, the Bangalore-based company has held discussions with several VC funds including IDG Ventures and Kalaari Capital. The firm offers live online lectures or classroom solutions for students through its partners of teachers and professors.
