Bangalore-based parenting-focused social network, Tinystep, has raised an undisclosed amount in seed round of funding from ecommerce giant Flipkart.

Tinystep was founded in 2015 by Suhail Abidi. The startup provides a free and comprehensive platform to connect parents with doctors, child service providers and other parents globally. It serves a fundamental need of parents, especially moms; the need to connect, ask and share with other parents going through the same phase in life.

The raised capital will be utilised to develop Tinystep’s product, enhance user experience and team expansion. Besides, the funds will also be used to further accelerate the company’s growth and its user engagement.

With features like the Q&A Forum, individual and group chats, Tinystep is aiming to be the platform for all sorts of parenting needs. The company has recently launched its feature of vaccination and growth charts to help create a constant awareness among the child’s growth.

Nishant Verman, head of Corporate Development at Flipkart said, “ The core team has a perfect blend of young, energetic and talented individuals that can take this product to the next level. The child care industry holds massive potential and Tinystep being a community driven product is definitely going in the right direction towards dominating it.”
