Indian marketplace for private jets and helicopters, JetSetGo has raised its first round of funding from cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s YouWeCan Ventures, an early stage venture fund which was launched in April this year. This is the fifth investment by YouWeCan Venture since its inception. Its other investments include beauty and wellness segment Vyomo, on-demand logistics service provider Moovo, education marketplace Edukart, and online healthcare marketplace Healthians.com.
Founded in 2014 by Kanika Tekriwal and Sudheer Perla, Bengaluru-based JetSetGo provides charter customers the option of booking a private jet online. It offers consumers a variety of services including crew, maintenance, costing, availability of aircrafts, as well as access to services and spares.
Commenting on the investment Singh said, “JetSetGo has left me impressed with its unique concept and capabilities. I see a lot of potential and aggression in the brand to give its best to the customer bringing much needed change in the private aviation sector which was long awaited.”
The company’s clientele base includes corporate houses, celebrities, sports personalities, and HNIs. The funding from Yuvraj Singh will help JetSetGo to expand its footprints in to more cities and board more sports personalities, celebrities, and HNIs.
