Wishup, the 6-year old remote employee platform, received a funding of one million dollars from Orios Venture Partners. The startup will use this capital to make its supply end stronger in India. The Delhi-based Wishup was founded by Neeleswill Rangwani and Vivek Gupta, both IIT alumni.
In the last two years, the startup has grown ten times, successfully connecting suitable remote-workers to the employers who need their services. Wishup focuses on redefining work culture and task management in the country. It is now looking at expanding its available categories by providing remote workers in the fields of marketing, admin, operations and bookkeeping. It will soon be engaging more talent, not just across India, but across the world in varioius categories and verticals.
The time is just right for expansion with the pandemic leading to a growth in the community of remote workers. The demand for remote work and remote workers is already surging, and Wishup is working towards equipping itself to fulfil that demand. Given the huge talent base in India and other developing countries in the world, it should not be difficult for Wishup to build a strong supply network.
Customers are able to hire virtual assistants via Wishup, who are not only trained and efficient, but end up proving to be cost-effective.
The growing community of gig workers in India comprises a significant number of women who are happy to take up part-time jobs or work on projects from the comfort of their homes, as it offers them flexible schedules, along with a good income and the freedom to choose the project they like.
