BeepKart is taking a digital-first approach to solving for the lack of trust and broken customer experience that exists in the multi-billion dollar used two-wheeler market.
BeepKart, a full-stack online retailer of used bikes, on Wednesday announced to have raised INR 7.5 crore led by InnoVen Capital. The recent investment underlines the firm’s commitment to back promising start-ups that are disrupting their respective categories.
“Our focus is to deliver a brilliant user experience and for a BeepKart bike to become the brand of choice for millions seeking value-for-money personal mobility. With our recent equity funding as well as venture debt, we are well-positioned to execute towards an aggressive growth path,” said Hemir Doshi, co-founder, BeepKart
The pandemic brought the market of used vehicles to prominence. An online platform for buying and selling used cars, 46 per cent of the general public claimed a decline in the purchase of new vehicles due to a budget crunch. While 50 per cent were in favour of pre-owned vehicles because it not only solved the purpose of privacy during a commute but was a cheaper and more viable alternative, according to a survey conducted by Cars24.
“While India is the largest two-wheeler market in the world, the used two-wheeler market remains fragmented & opaque. A full-stack business model delivers high value in vehicle e-commerce. Two-wheelers are a great use case for an online product journey. We look forward to partnering with BeepKart as they continue to build,” said Tarana Lalwani, founding partner, InnoVen Capital.
