Tech-Led Jobs Platform ‘Awign’ Raises Undisclosed Funding
Awign, a tech-led jobs platform, has raised undisclosed funds from existing investors Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, Unitus Ventures, and Eagle10 Ventures.
As per the startup, it plans to use the money to finance its expansion to more cities and introduce new services.
Started by Annanya Sarthak, Gurpreet Singh, and Praveen Sah, Awign claims to be fighting a war against unemployment, underemployment & lack of skills since 2016.
Managing a diverse fleet of trained gig workforce across more than 7,000 pin codes in India, the startup has worked with over 1.5 lakh people and grown 25x in the last two years.
With clients, including names like Bigbasket, Britannia, Swiggy, and ITC, Annanya talked about the impact Awign has created for the gig workforce. He claims that the average income of supply-chain partners has doubled in the past year from pre-pandemic levels.
Talking about the present situation and relevance of their platform in regards to it, Annanya Sarthak, Awign co-founder and CEO, said,
“In the new normal, strong on-ground last-mile assignments and supply-chain support emerged as the backbone of many businesses. As the country adapts to the steadiness of a less-contact world, we see large-scale demand for conventional last-mile delivery, retail/restaurant audits etc., and new gigs online video content monitoring, online exam proctoring etc.”
