EngineerBabu, an IT and products startup, has raised a seed amount of funding from Scale Ventures. Until now, the company was bootstrapped. With this new funding coming to the company, it is all set to venture into an international organization.
The company was co-founded by two best friends — Mayank Pratap and Aditi Chaurasia. Later on, Avdhesh Solanki joined them. EngineerBabu is a service provider company which is filling the gaps of demand and supply in IT industry.
Mayank Pratap, Co-founder of EngineerBabu, said,
“The flashback of how I managed to fetch an investment for my company, still gives me goose bumps. This was bit of a journey, I would say. But after all, it’s the journey that matters. Destination achievement is the final fruit.”
EngineerBabu started as a product-oriented company and soon turned into service provider due to lack of funds. The company was bootstrapped entirely from the personal savings of co-founders. After Avdhesh joined, the company shifted their focus more on developing products for start-up.
EngineerBabu has helped many start-ups like thrillophilia, Justride, Maalgaadi, hoppingo. They have also worked with many big brands such as Yourstory, Wittyfeed, Samsung.
Adit, Co-founder and CEO of EngineerBabu, said,
We were not a new outsource company to the startups we were startup that was dying to get ideas to next level. We built many ideas for our product that would help us in getting a funding. But turning 3 of us into 60 employee company was a real struggle.
The company has created a subscription based platform where they connect filtered client to expert companies. They are also into creating AI Based requirement gathering platform to collect project information from a client. Right now, they have 250+ Paid subscribers, and 240+ are in the waiting list.
The startup is now planning to open international sales offices in USA, UK, Singapore and Saudi with Investment money. With the trust of Scale ventures, EngineerBabu is ready to acquire more customers, compete with big brands of IT and give services alike.
