Register My Marriage secures funding from Mumbai Angels
Delhi-based marriage registration portal RegisterMyMarriage.com has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from angel investor network Mumbai Angels in a seed round.
Angel investor Praveen Dubey also participated in the round.
The firm will use the funds to expand its registration services to wills, divorces, birth certificates, income certificates, etc, it said in a statement on Tuesday.
Ten Strike Consultancy Pvt Ltd, which runs and operates Register My Marriage, was founded by management graduate Ankur Arun and lawyer Gaurav Sharma in 2014. Prior to setting up Register My Marriage, Arun was director at financial services firm Jaypee Capital, while Sharma founded and operated his own law firm in Gurgaon. Sharma is also a promoter in CernoTech, a firm that offers cloud-based solutions to small and medium enterprises.
The firm helps users register their marriages online by processing all the necessary government documentation.
"In India, the official registration of key life events such as birth, marriage, death and divorce is a cumbersome and highly fragmented process. Documentation can also be problematic resulting in innumerable hours being wasted by both individual applicants and officials. We are developing automation technology to solve this complex pan India problem," said Arun in the statement.
The company currently operates in the National Capital Region (NCR). It has serviced over 32,000 customers in less than two years.
"There is also strong social impact towards rights and participation in society for women and the poor. We would aggregate lawyers to provide a low cost service riding on our robust technology," said Sharma.
Other recent investments made by Mumbai Angels include teae-tailing startup Vahdam. The angel network along with early-stage investment firm Fireside Ventures' Kanwaljit Singh and Singapore Angel Network invested Rs 4.4 crore ($650,000) in the Delh-based firm.
Cloud-based content delivery platform WittyParrot raised Rs3 crore ($450,000) in seed investment from Mumbai Angels and a few Silicon Valley-based angel investors in December last year.
The angel investor had participated in the seed investment roundof human resources technology startup DoSelect, along with TV Mohandas Pai's family fund 3one4 Capital in November 2016. Prior to that, it participated in the pre-Series A investment round of adtech startup MintM in July 2016.
