Kapil Dev, former Indian cricket team captain, has led a funding round with an overall investment of ₹1 crore in an online professional services provider WizCounsel. The round also included investors such as SARC Associates, and Nagarro.
The company will use the infuse funds for marketing, sales and to strengthen current operations.
“People still look for professional services the way they used to 15 years back and Professionals still develop a business the same way. This is a perfect “that’s how it has always been opportunity”. It is a big industry that is outdated and badly in need of improvement for speed, convenience, affordability, and quality,” Ranu Gupta, Founder & CEO, WizCounsel said.
WizCounsel is based out of Delhi, launched in March 2018 by Ranu Gupta. It is an online market network that helps people & small businesses hire & manage freelance legal, tax and accounting experts according to your budget and needs.
The platform functions as a marketplace and a SAAS to help people hire the experts and get work done seamlessly using inbuilt work management framework.
“It is going to be all about the Internet. People are already using it to order food, to book doctors, etc. and I am sure they will start looking for services from CAs and Lawyers or even Accountants online. Many directories exist, but the thing is there must be a platform to give them much more confidence about how they deal with experts for their work,” said Kapil Dev.
