The Bengaluru based B2B mobility startup Noticeboard has raked up undisclosed amount of funding from former Myntra CTO Shamik Sharma and TaxiForSure co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna. Following the funding, both Sharma and Radhakrishna will come on company’s board as advisors or mentors.
This is the second round of funding for the Bengaluru based startup since July this year. In July, Noticeboard had raised Rs 8 crore or 1.2 million from Stellaris Venture Partners and other two private investors.
Noticeboard’s co-founder Vishal Gahlaut said that both new investors will help the company in strengthening its technological products, and hiring promising senior employees for pursuing global expansion. Speaking specifically on Radhakrishna’s role, Gahlaut said that his rich experience in TaxiForSure will certainly help in better dealing with drivers and other ground staff members, which are the primary customer targets of this startup.
Noticeboard: a communication platform created for frontline staff
Noticeboard, which was founded in 2016, claims to have created an efficient application that would enable companies to better communicate with all the frontline staff members. This primarily includes employees like delivery boys, drivers, sales employees, warehouse staff etc.
The startup claims that these low educated & low salaried employees often don’t have access to e-mails & laptops, resulting in slower communication & subsequently impacting their productivity. Noticeboard hopes to address this pain point with its app, which can be downloaded from Google play store.
The Bengaluru based startup counts several companies among its many customers, including Myntra, Grofers and Pepperfry. Noticeboard also claims that companies hailing from hotel aggregation and car rental space are also availing its services.
