Mumbai-based startup Zuver has raised $180K (INR 1.2 Cr) from IT consulting & infrastructure management group Shruth & Smith Holdings and retail assisted ecommerce network Hermes Group.
Users can book a driver on Zuver’s aap as per their convenience. They can either book drivers for outstation trips, or call them on the moment or even avail the driver for an entire month.
Sovin Hegde, co-founder of Zuver, said that the concept of a driver on demand is underserved. He added, “An integrated app that would let you book, track and pay for premium driver services which not just offers any driver, but a sophisticated, well-spoken and well-mannered one at your doorstep is certainly a novel concept. We are empowered by a technology that would let us dispatch a driver within 40 minutes of your booking. Zuver will transform the way many commutes”
With the present funding, Zuver plans to launch its operations in Mumbai immaculately.
Zuver is also planning to raise a Pre-Series A round of funding soon, in order to expand to Pune and Bangalore. Presently, it is present in Mumbai with 60 drivers on board. It also plans to increase its driver partners to 150 in Mumbai by the month’s end.
