The startup will use the funds for scaling up and expanding its services across multiple cities in India.
Right Angle Web India Pvt Ltd, which owns and operates an online marketplace for home services Timesaverz.com, has raised an undisclosed amount in seed funding led by internet business professional Neville Taraporewalla and GSF Superangels founder Rajesh Sawhney, as reported by VCCircle.
The startup will use the funds for scaling up and expanding its services across multiple cities in India. As of now, it is only available in Mumbai.
“We have established a business around organising a disorganised home services market through mobile technology intervention. Not only that, the social impact of this model has seen job creation and supplementary income for individual skilled workers. The current fundraising will be used to expand into other cities and strengthen our mobile-first vision,” Debadutta Upadhyaya, co-founder, Timesaverz told to VCCircle.
The Mumbai-based start-up was co-founded by Debadutta and Lovnish Bhatia in July 2012. According to the company, its marketplace connects home service seekers with home service providers. It currently has a network of over 500 service partners. Each service partner goes through a process before enlisting with the platform that includes a thorough background check, verification of skill-sets and polishing of soft-skills.
Available in Mumbai, the network of agents helps time-stressed Mumbaikars outsource their home service requirements in the area of cleaning tasks, handyman jobs, appliance repairs and errands co-ordination. Quality service delivery on time is ensured through ‘live’ tracking of the entire process from the job request to job completion and feedback gathering through mobile phones.
