Exclusive : Amazon India is piloting beauty services (What happened to Housejoy Funding)?

Amazon is lead investor in Housejoy, which provides similar services (and many more).

Amazon India is piloting beauty services in Bangalore and is currently available only in selected pincodes.

Beauty services by Amazon lets you order and schedule professional in-home beauty services directly from Amazon.in. Amazon has partnered with third party service to deliver these services.

The Housejoy Funding?

With the launch of Amazon services, the company does compete with Bangalore based Housejoy.

The trivia here is that Amazon is lead investor in Housejoy, which provides similar services (and many more).

What gives? Is Amazon using Housejoy backend to run this?
