Tech-led jobs platform Awign raised an undisclosed amount totaling upto $4.9 mn in a pre-series B funding round from existing investors Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, Unitus Ventures and Eagle10 Ventures that will be used to finance its expansion to more cities and introduce new services.
Awign has worked with over 1.5 lakh people, and grown 25x in the last two years, currently working with a diverse fleet of trained gig workforce across more than 7,000 pin codes in India. Gig workers are independent and temporary workers who enter into formal agreements with on-demand companies to provide services to the company's clients.
"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" said Annanya Sarthak Co-founder and CEO.
