GirnarSoft, the mother company of India’s auto portals CarDekho.com, Gaadi.com, and Zigwheels.com, on Tuesday announced it plans to invest $ 20 million in its subsidiary InsuranceDekho, an omni path insurance platform.
According to a statement released by the company, the startup will use the funds to invest in branding and strengthening its tech, make, and sales teams.
Commenting about the investment, Amit Jain, CEO and Co-Founder, GirnarSoft, said,
” InsuranceDekho started as a meagre strategy to complete the ecosystem play-act. Over the years, under Ankit’s leader, it has taken a life of its own and ranks among the leading insuretech firms in the country. They have inherited CarDekho’s capital efficiency and tech prowess but are building a large and independent business of their own.” “This proposed money infusion is our vote of confidence in their ability to build India’s most enduring insuretech business in India ,” he computed.
Launched in 2017, InsuranceDekho is an insurtech venture that allowed to be consumers to compare different insurance policies based on their requirements and offering them the best choices available.
