Jaipur-based co-working Space, Wired Hub, raised an undisclosed amount of funding in a seed round led by angel investors Ankit Maheshwari (Jaipur-based CA) and Anand Singh.
Both investors will have an advisory role for the Business Development and expansion of Wired Hub, and Ankit Maheshwari will be joining the board.
Founded by Himanshi Goyal, Wired Hub publicly opened on February 1, 2016 and has organised regular workshops, mentorship sessions and pitching contests.
Wired Hub, which currently has over 10 members and is spread in an area of over 1000 sq. ft., has also introduced a unique concept of co-working club where members can avail the facilities and attend the networking events, without taking a desk space. The membership starts at a minimum of INR 2500.
Himanshi Goyal, co-founder and CEO of Wired Hub said, “The funds would be used towards further expansion of Wired Hub to increase the number of desk spaces and will now cover 2 floors and an area of over 2200 sq. ft. We want to provide best experience to budding startups and ensure that they have a smoother startup journey with fewer hurdles. We work closely with all our startups to help them and provide them with a direction. Also, we are planning expansion into more cities in near future.”
Blue Box Media co-founders, Pawas Jain and Deepanshu Khandelwal are also a part of the founding team of Wired Hub. They made an early investment along with Himanshi on the venture. Pawas recently acquired Startify in his personal capacity, to aide the online presence and growth of Wired Hub itself.
Prior to this in February 2016, Bangalore-based plug ‘n’ play workspace for startups, BHIVE Workspace, raised an undisclosed amount in seed funding.
