Tushar Mittal, Founder and CEO, Office Banao said “We’re thrilled to have Lightspeed as a partner early in our journey. Given our prior experience in the space, we observed that the experience of designing and developing an office, especially for a small-mid-sized business is far from ideal. The sector is unorganised, opaque, and so underserved, that we believe only a tech-led approach can help deliver a delightful experience to workspace owners. Our belief is that with investment in technology, supplier ecosystem, product platform, and a great team, we can build a very large and very profitable venture, as we have demonstrated in the past”.
Rahul Taneja, Partner, Lightspeed commented about the latest funding he added “ OfficeBanao is a mission-driven company, committed to making a meaningful difference in how workspaces are developed in India. We are delighted to partner with them and are excited to see how they transform this market. With a depth of experience and a supplier network, the team is best placed to disrupt the existing opaque and sub-par experience that plagues the industry today. It is encouraging to see the early progress, the sustainable business model and most importantly, the customer delight they have delivered and we look forward to their continued expansion ”
PURPOSE OF FUNDING:
The start-up will also focus on establishing a deeper on-ground presence in the top 25 markets, catering to customers from small-mid-sized businesses to large enterprises, and investing in customer success and an ecosystem of execution partners.
