Shopping is a stress buster for most of us but recently due to the coming up of various online shopping sites, this stress buster is slowly losing its sheen. Nowadays before buying a simple scarf we check its variety and price across 10 different shopping portals and this exercise ends up making us more and more confused.

The Mumbai based company was started by college mates Maneesh Madambath and Harsh Gadia back in 2011. They have also be running Smursh Media, a media agency, for the past five years now.
Harsh started out by setting up his own e-commerce project in 2008 but soon shifted focus to set up a digital marketing agency called Smursh. It was in 2011 when he finally settled his itch to set up a world class consumer web product with Klip.
On the other hand, Maneesh spent a good half a decade on the web before starting Smursh with Harsh. From making fans sites of Bollywood heroes to selling online ad spaces, he has done it all.
Venture Nursery and Mumbai Angles are the two investors who have supported Klip throughout its journey. In 2013, Klip raised an undisclosed from Venture Nursery and in the same year received undisclosed amount from Mumbai Angels and a few individual investors. The funds were used to build technical resources for the product and also to increase its user base.
