Bengaluru-based enterprise communication platform Noticeboard has picked up funding from two angel investors, Aprameya Radhakrishna, co-founder of TaxiForSure and Shamik Sharma, former CTO of Myntra, according to a report in the Times of India. In addition to providing the capital, Sharma has also comes aboard the company as a mentor. The funding from Sharma and Radhakrishna is part of recently closed financing round when the company raised capital from VCs such as Stellaris Venture Partners and others.

Founded last year by three individuals, Vishal Gahlaut, Vishesh Dahinwal and Sarath Chandran, Noticeboard is a communication platform for teams focused on delivering customer success.

It has been observed that often teams closest to customers are not connected to central teams, whether it is a business' delivery network, business partners or service agents. The startup believe in assimilating the frontline teams as it believes their insights are essential to delivering customer success.

According to the TOI report, Noticeboard has decided on using the funds raised for product development and hiring for some of the key positions. The company is also considering to expand its presence outside of the Indian subcontinent. "We have on boarded three big clients while several other small to medium sized companies have also joined us. We are conducting other pilots as well," said Vishal Gahlaut, co-founder of Noticeboard sharing his company's expansion plans.

Speaking about his latest investment, Sharma said "Noticeboard is on a unique journey to disrupt the way organizations manage their desk-less staff. Bringing the mobile workforce into the knowledge economy is possibly the biggest opportunity in the world of communication since email, and the team at Noticeboard is well on their path of establishing early dominance in this multi-billion dollar space."

According to Gahlaut, the startup had been garnering a lot of curiosity from various stakeholders in the US for expanding its operations there and the founding team is currently navigating through the proposal for the same.
