Innov8 raises angel funding via LetsVenture, Venture Catalysts
Other angel investors like Vijay Shekhar Sharma of Paytm, Rajan Anandan of Google, Kunal Shah of FreeCharge, Girish Mathrubootham of Freshdesk and Anand Chandrasekeran of Facebook, participated in the round.
Innov8 will use the proceeds for expanding to Gurgaon, Noida and Mumbai. Founded in 2015, the company offers co-working, startup hub, office and event spaces. It is also backed by Y Combinator and has centres in Delhi, Chandigarh and Bangalore, where it opened its biggest workspace recently.
CIO Angel Networks leads round in Aisle
Aisle, a Bangalore-based online match-making app, has secured an angel funding led by CIO Angel Network.
Other investors like Konglo Ventures, White Unicorn Ventures, and LetsVenture also took part in the round.
On behalf of CIO Angel Network, Anthony Thomas, former CIO of Vodafone, and Sanjay Mehta, a serial entrepreneur-turned-angel investor, led the round, according to a statement.
“Online matchmaking in India is a gender, age, proximity, faith and mother tongue-based business. We think it’s also essential to understand a person’s taste & intent—these are equally important,” said Able Joseph, founder & CEO, Aisle.
Aisle was founded in 2014 by Joseph and is a members-only online singles community that aims to tread the middle path between traditional matrimony websites and casual dating applications.
In January 2016, it had raised a pre-Series A funding from TermSheet and ah! Ventures. Other angels like Anand Chandrasekaran, former Snapdeal CPO, and Mekin Maheshwari, former chief people officer with Flipkart, also participated in the round.
