Accelerates to reach out to startups and self-employed professionals
Delhi, India: July, 2018
Wishup, a Delhi based startup provides remote employees for various functions ranging from virtual executive assistant, lead management, customer support, secondary research, database building, sales excellence and digital marketing. Wishup’s services are best fit for self-employed professionals, SMES, and startups, particularly useful for team sizes up to 100. The closing of the funding round by Inflection Point Ventures (IPV) is a validation of Wishup’s vision and services which is now set to target more entrepreneurs and startups across India and abroad markets.
”With this funding, we will expand our business development, marketing and technology teams. We are looking for well- connected business development managers across Bangalore, Mumbai, Gurgaon and United States,” said Neelesh, Founder of Wishup,
Entrepreneurs and self-employed professionals have a lot of things to deal with and are always on the lookout for reliable and efficient employees. On the other hand, there is a lot of generalist and specialized workforce available in the market and that’s where Wishup comes in! Wishup takes care of filtering, managing and training remote employees and has established its quality mark over the time. The current business model charges professionals periodic subscription and allows clients to customize the number of hours they wish to use the service for.
“We believe that the future of work is Remote. We already see people working from Bali for organizations based in US. Over next few years, we want to develop Wishup into a platform where you can get remote employees for various functions with a click of a button. Wishup will be responsible for of hiring, training and managing these remote employees,” Neelesh added.
On behalf of IPV, the investment round was driven by Co-founders Vinay Bansal , Ex CFO – Wildcraft and Sumeet Kapur , Cofounder & Ex CFO – Nearbuy.com. Speaking about the deal, Sumeet said “As a group of CXOs and entrepreneurs, we saw a lot of potential in the segment Wishup is building. People want to use their time meaningfully on key objectives and projects, and for that to happen, it’s important that they delegate the daily and tributary tasks to someone. With Wishup, this service almost costs one-fourth of the cost of a full-time secretary, so it opens up to a much larger population than just CXOs and large business owners.”
Wishup has been making life easier for entrepreneurs and self-employed professionals and this is what they have to say:
“First I was skeptical about the whole VA game. But when I started my trial at Wishup this completely changed. Now I can really feel the value (and power!) a VA can have. The VA’s of Wishup are very understanding and well trained and would recommend the service to any entrepreneur who seeks an extra pair of hands! Cheers!”
