Bengaluru: Aisle, a dating platform that focuses on connecting Indians and Indian-origin people from around the world, has raised an undisclosed amount as part of its pre-Series A funding round.
The round in Bengaluru-based Aisle was led by Hurun India founder and managing director Anas Rahman and seed-stage funding firm Konglo Ventures founder Vinod Jose, the startup said in a statement.
Aisle, operated by Aisle Network Pvt Ltd, was set up by Able Joseph in 2014. The company says its platform is designed for Indian cultural sensitivities, and it occupies the niche between matrimonial platforms and casual dating apps.
It will use the capital raised in this pre-Series A round to build its presence in Tier-II markets in the country and position itself as the platform of choice for non-resident Indians (NRIs). Currently, it claims to have more than three million users, 9% of whom are NRIs from over 100 countries.
