Shopping Q&A App mishTag Secures Angel Funding From A Clutch Of Investors

mishTag (Ask Anything Shopping) is a shopping Q&A app that bills itself as the ‘Quora for shopping’, providing a simple to use app that enables shoppers to ask questions and seek product recommendation by just uploading a photo along with their question.

mishTag raised an angel round from the likes of M&Y Partners, SVG Media, Anthill Ventures, and other angels. It’s also being supported by 91springboard, along with several great entrepreneurs and thinkers from Internet Industry who believe in their shoot for the moon ideals.

“Going forward, the plan is to create an AI­based chatbot which besides improving the performance of the application would automate the Q&A process. We are also currently working on rolling out a feature, where shoppers can directly chat with local merchants selling the stuff of their interest,” says Arpit Chhabra, co­founder and CTO of mishTag.

“We have got over 8,000+ app downloads without much burn, and have an average time spent of 15 mins (across web and mobile). The platform has grown organically, multiple folds in last 3 months alone and drove over 1000+ transactions for various Ecommerce brands through product recommendations, ” says Pushpendra Thakur, co­founder, mishTag.
