Online customer support platform Freshdesk raised $31 million in a fresh round of funding from private equity firms Tiger Global, Accel Partners and Google Capital, the company said.

 

Freshdesk, based in southern city of Chennai, was founded in October 2010, and provides a cloud-based customer support platform to companies. The start-up competes with the likes of US-based Zendesk Inc, which went public in May.

 

"Freshdesk has a good product, which makes it a good investment for us," said Shekhar Kirani, Partner, Accel Partners.

 

"We were not looking for fresh funding till the end of this year but investors were willing to offer significant premiums, so we took it," Girish Mathrubootham, Chief executive and Co-founder, Freshdesk said.
