Annkur is overjoyed by this milestone and shares his experience with us
I feel great. It is yet to sink in honestly. We have struggled enough and worked hard for this. Yet the daunting task of creating a business still remains. Tirthesh has been great companion on this journey. I am excited about where we are going as a team.
Earlier this year, PriceBaba was backed by a group of five angel investors, Karamveer Singh (Ayush Software), Dinesh Tejwani (Fast Fact Computer Systems), Aditya Mishra (Switchme.in), Ashutosh Rathi (BasilPartners) and Ranjeet Walunj (The Service Solutions). The service aims to reach 10 cities across India In 2013.
