Gurgaon-based Anameha Infomedia Pvt. Ltd, which owns and operates wedding planning portal WedMeGood, has raised Rs.2.7 crore from early-stage investor Indian Angel Network, the latter said in a statement on Wednesday.
IAN members Hemant Kanakia and Alok Mittal have led the investment round, with Kanakia joining the board of WedmeGood. The startup plans to utilise the funds to scale up technology and sales teams, besides focusing on the upcoming mobile app and pilot alternative revenue sources.
Founded in February 2014 by husband-wife duo, Anand Shahani and Mehak Shahani, WedMeGood offers a pre-screened curated vendor list to help customers find professionals such as photographers, make-up artists, decor vendors, jewelery brands, designer wear and catering firms.
The company claims to have over 3,500 vendors and a million customers across cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai and Kolkata.
The founders duo came up with the idea of starting a wedding planning portal while planning their own wedding and that’s when they decided to launch this online startup to make the entire execution process a smooth affair for every Indian couple.
“The IAN investment will help us reach a greater pan-India presence as we plan to extend our vendor base across major metro cities,” Wedmegood co-founder Anand Shahani said in a statement
