WorkIndia, India's largest blue and grey-collar job portal, has raised $12 million in its pre-Series B funding from SBI Holdings, Tokyo, Yamauchi No.10 Family Office, the founding family of Nintendo, Persol, and Insitor.
"The blue-collar market has seen two phenomena viz One, Penetration and Two, Adoption. From 2018 to 2020, rapid penetration of smartphones due to Reliance Jio, and from 2020 until today, the adoption of smartphone usage in the blue-collar workers' daily lives driven by Covid. With the new round of funding, WorkIndia will further strengthen its product and data science capabilities including entry into the yet untapped Southeast Asian blue-collar market," Kunal Patil, co-founder, and CEO, WorkIndia.
