On-demand driver solutions provider DriversKart has recently closed an undisclosed amount of funding as a part of its Pre Series A round from ah! Ventures and others. This round was also led by Sidharth Pansari, Apurva Salarpuria, Saket Agarwal and Ayush Patni, Silicon Valley investors and was joined by Namit Agarwal.
The current funds will be utilized for technological enhancements, enhanced driver On-boarding/Training and marketing and team building.
Started in September 2015, this organization is operational in 5 major cities; Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and Chennai and has a strong team of 20 employees.
The key idea of DriversKart was coined by its Founder and currently the CEO, Vinit Srivastava, an IIM Calcutta alumnus with corporate and entrepreneurship experience of over 10 years.
He says, “There exists a latent demand for organized chauffeurs even among professionals who commute to work. With car density per 1000 people at mere 13, the car ownership will continue to see exponential growth resulting in time lost during traffic and parking. With on demand chauffeur, customers will be able to dedicate their time to add more value to their personal and professional life.”
