6 Different Ways You Can Fund Your Startup

You’ve just come up with an excellent business idea. You know it’ll blow up. In fact, you’re ready to present it to the world after taking the initial steps of choosing a business model...

India’s largest marketplace for maid bureaus, BookMyBai has raised an undisclosed amount of capital in pre-Series A round of funding from Japan-based social venture fund ARUN Seed. Several others Japan-based angel investors and venture capital firms have also participated in the funding round.

BookMyBai plans to use the freshly raised funds to increase its market share and presence in the cities it currently operates in. The startup will also use the capital to expand to and launch operations in Delhi-NCR and Hyderabad.

Anupam Sinhal, Co-founder, BookMyBai.com, said, “We are also planning to launch a multi-lingual app for the workers through which the workers can look for a job in real-time.”

Satoko Kono, President, ARUN LLC, said, “They have been able to impact the lives of thousands of marginalised women who are now earning enough money to support families. We see this as an opportunity to be able to support a startup which is not only sustainable but also has a large social impact amongst the rural households.”
