According to Mohit Gundecha, CEO and co-founder at Jombay, the raised capital will be used to create products that will help employees communicate and develop organization skills. The startup will build these products from prototype stage to in-depth products.
As part of the deal, VentureWorks India will bring their operational expertise and network to Jombay. With this, Keshav Sanghi, former MD of Goldman Sachs, will also join Jombay’s advisory board.
Founded by Suruchi Wagh and Mohit Gundecha in 2010, Jombay is a web-based recommendation engine that enables companies to take decisions based on data driven analytics for recruitment, performance management and employee management.

Jombay’s clientele includes customers from sectors such as BFSI, IT & ITes, BPO/KPO, Pharmaceuticals, Retail, FMCG, Hospitality, Manufacturing, etc. It’s currently working with more than 150 customers.
Mohit said, “We aim to be an end-to-end human capital management solution throughout the employee lifecycle.”
Currently, the company is focusing on building products which will be designed to help employees with their communication and development skills within the organization.
