Quikr makes yet another acquisition this month and another fashion app gains funding in India. An edtech firm and an adtech acquisition further spice up our list of funded startups.
Quikr’s beauty brand AtHomeDiva currently services customers in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Gurgaon, and Hyderabad. As part of the deal, StayGlad’s 100-member team, including its founders, will join AtHomeDiva.
StayGlad was founded in May last year by three IIT-Kharagpur grads – Prateek Jain, Shashank Gupta, and Kavish Desai. It offers over 100 different kinds of services and claims to have served tens of thousands of customers over the past three months.
Quikr previously acquired beauty services startups Salosa and ZapLuk.
The investment follows a trail of fashion startup investments in India over the past few weeks.
