Car Repair and Servicing Startups GoMechanic Grabs Funding from Orios Venture Capital

Gurgaon based Car repair and automobile servicing startup GoMechanic has successfully raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding from Orios Venture Partners, a Mumbai-based early stage venture fund which primarily invests in software and technology enabled startups.

GoMechanic has built a reputation for itself in the Indian car repair and automobile servicing space. Be it periodic maintenance, denting painting, major repairs, car cleaning, or even changing tires and batteries, GoMechanic is known to provide the best available resources to take care of its users’ prized possessions.

The startup, which started its journey in April 2016 and claims to be India’s first tech-based automobile servicing solutions startup, has decided to use the seed funding from Orios Venture Partners and angel investor Dhianu Das to expand its operations in the whole of NCR. Some part of the funds will also be utilised to establish partnerships with car service centres and for customer acquisition activities.

According to GoMechanic co-founder Amit Bhasin, their goal is to give car owners a seamless, professional yet affordable experience when they seek out repair and maintenance services.

Prior to this, the startup co-founded by IIM Ahmedabad alumni Amit Bhasin and Kushal Karwa had raised $250,000 from Venture Catalysts, in December 2016.

Commenting on his company’s decision to come onboard with GoMechanic, Rehan Yar Khan, Managing Partner, Orios Venture Partners said, “The consistent deployment of technology and vision towards organising an un-organised industry such as the auto spare and services market makes them good partners for us.”

Angel Investor Dhianu Das feels the same way about the Gurgaon startup and believes that the industry itself has a lot of potential and immense GoMechanic’s disruptive idea and effective execution gives them an edge above the rest.
