Users can pay bills, buy groceries, schedule laundry pickup, get car services, get their phones repaired and perform several other day to day tasks easily. Dunzo currently operates in six cities across India including Bengaluru, Pune, Gurugram, Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad.

Last financial year in 2017-2018, Dunzo recorded a turnover of INR 98.5 lakhs. The startup witnessed a tremendous growth in turnover which was mere INR 71,000 previous financial year in 2016-2017. However, it recorded a five fold increase in its net loss to INR 10.75 crores in FY17 from INR 2.13 crores in FY16.

Google invested INR 92 crores ($12.3 million to be exact) in Dunzo along with venture firms Aspada and Blume Ventures last year in December 2017. Prior to this, the startup raised around INR 8 crores ($1.2 million) from Aspada in November 2016.

Alteria Capital was founded by former InnoVen Capital executives Vinod Murali and Ajay Hattangdi. The venture capital firm has invested in startups like Universal Sportsbiz, Vogo, Toppr and RAW Pressery.
