Venture capitalists see a sure — or likely — thing in TaxiForSure
Serendipity Infolabs Pvt., which runs TaxiForSure, didn’t detail the amount raised.
The news, however, gives a lift to the fragmented ground transportation sector, which increasingly is going online and mobile. Companies such as TaxiForSure, Limos.com, Groundlink, Uber and Taxi Magic are marketing their services to consumers through online and mobile channels, and are attracting attention from venture capital companies.
With the funding, Anand Daniel of Accel and Ritesh Banglani of Helion become members of the Sterndipity board.
TaxiForSure.com is a consumer site and the company also is trying to push into the corporate market for ground transportation.
The service is operational in Bangalore, with plans to expand to Delhi and Mumbai “very soon,” the company says.
The company says it “works with taxi operators and enables them with technology to ensure that customers get an easily accessible, safe, reliable taxi ride ‘for sure.'”
