Talking about targeting its consumers, he says, “Our constant effort is to adapt to new and innovative technology advancements in the market as our target audience (millennials) is tech savvy and constantly updated.”
The startup last year raised Rs 6 crore from early-stage venture capital firm Fireside Ventures. Kanwaljit Singh, Managing Partner, Fireside Ventures, says, “boAt’s financial performance has been strong and is one of the strongest brands in our portfolio. They identified a white space and came up with a solution. They have created a product line-up that caters specifically to how the Indian consumer wants to listen to music.”
