Delaware and Bengaluru-based digital gaming start-up Driffle raised $3.4 million in a seed funding round. BEENEXT, a global venture firm, led the round along with other companies including JAFCO Asia, Taurus Ventures, Better Capital and White Venture Capital. Angel investors Kunal Shah, founder of CRED, Maninder Gulati, chief strategy officer of OYO, Amit Damani, co-founder of StayVista, and Archana Priyadarshini, co-founder of fwdSlash Capital also participated in this round.
The company will use this capital to bolster its tech infrastructure, expand in new markets and strengthen its product development. Additionally, the e-gaming company will use the capital to add more members across several verticals including product, engineering, marketing and customer support in the Gurgaon office.
“At Driffle, we enable instant delivery of our goods digitally, with simplified payment processes, overcoming the complications of payment fraud and cross-border distribution. We are thrilled to have reputed investors backing us as we expand our presence globally with the aim to make gaming more secure and convenient like never before,” Chetan Bharadwaj, co-founder, and CEO commented on the recent development.
BEENEXT’s investor Anirudh Garg said that Driffle is “built by a team of avid gamers.” He added, “With their deep passion for problem-solving, the team is addressing customer experience, for buying digital goods, which has not been worked upon so far. Driffle offers the industry-demanded revamp and better customer experience for buyers and sellers internationally through their truly global model of business.”
