Social networking app VoxWeb has raised an amount of $100,000 (Rs.65 lakh) in its seed round of funding from Jitendra Gupta, the cofounder and managing director of Citrus Pay.
Founded in 2014 by former JP Morgan executive Yash Mishra and incubated in IIT Kharagpur, the startup recently launched its iOS and Android apps. It is a mobile app that allows users to attach a voice clip to pictures taken on their smartphones.
The Mumbai startup has launched its service in India, Europe and in the US. Presently it is targeting to launch in South Korea, Japan and the African continent over the coming 6-8 weeks, as reported by ET.
The app has under 1000 installs on Android as according to Google Play Store stats. This Indian origin startup is following the footsteps of other mobile first communication apps like Whatsapp, Snapchat, Instagram etc. with its USP being letting able to send voice messages with images. It’ll be interesting to see how will it capture the market.
