With an aim to increase its penetration in tier-2 cities and beyond, Overcart has come up with its own warranty brand, Overtrust that provides walk-in product repair services in 55 cities across India. Over and above, it has even added consumer electronics to its product portfolio.
Alexander Souter, MD & co-founder, Overcart said, “The capital will help us continue to place strategic bets on building out further hardware and software innovations, which will enable us to diagnose, refurbish and quality check products across more categories and locations.”
The company had previously raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Bangalore-based serial investor Krishnan Ganesh, startup accelerator – GSF Accelerator, and a host of angel investors.
With a vision to revolutionise the returns department of ecommerce and retail companies, Alex Souther and Saptarshi Nath founded Overcart in October, 2012.
