Travel portal, Trip Tap Toe, achieved another milestone by raising fresh capital in exchange of 26% stake for an undisclosed amount. Mr. R.S Sharma, former Chairman and Managing Director of India’s premier national oil company – Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, made the seed investment. Mr. Sharma, who is also serving as Senior Advisor for McKinsey & Company, saw huge potential in the team, its growth, business plans & their newly launched Trip Tap Toe Concierge App, the chat based travel assistant app.
While the terms of the transaction were not disclosed, the latest round will see the Gurgaon-based company use the funds towards creating a larger sales team, planning new marketing initiatives, further boosting its mobile & web technology platform, hiring the best talent around, as well as building immersive experiences that engage consumers.
Manuraj Singh Johar, Founder & CEO of Trip Tap Toe, says, “ We have received amazing response to our concierge app. Every early stage venture hopes to raise capital and attain strategic assistance to take its product to the market. This fresh seed-funding shot will help us accelerate our efforts and establish credibility in the industry. We also believe that fundraising is about finding good partners, and we are very excited about taking this journey forward with Mr. Sharma. This new partnership will help us improve our technology & bring to our customers an improved flights & hotels booking experience on both mobile & web.”
Founded in 2008, the young team achieved 4000 room nights booking in 15-16. In the current year Trip Tap Toe has seen a growth of more than 50% as compared to the corresponding period last year.
