RentSher is founded by alumni of IIT Delhi and Oxford University – Abhijit Shaha, Harsh Dhand and Karandeep S Vohra. The funds will be used in equal parts for product development, fulfilment and growth.
“We will strengthen the platform and build some of the industry defining features such as geo-tagging and supply chain automation.” said Abhijit, President of Product and Strategy.
According to RentSher CEO Harsh, “RentSher’s strong supply side and operations capability have enabled us to fulfil even large orders such as Windmill Asia event which saw 10000+ visitors, LIFE conference in 4 cities and Podar Jumbo Kids Annual Days for its 54 centres. Our vision is to make RentSher a platform that is at the intersection of sharing economy and on-demand economy with products delivered as and when our customers need them. We are building a strong team focused on sustaining 30-40% month-on-month growth that will enable us to reach 1000 orders/month this quarter itself and double it by next quarter.”
