Wishup, a remote employee platform, announced $1 million in financing from Orios Venture Partners on Monday. The money will be used by the Delhi-based firm to improve the platform’s supply end in India.
Wishup, founded in 2015 by IIT grads Neelesh Rangwani and Vivek Gupta, aims to reshape work culture and task management in India. It intends to broaden its accessible categories by giving job searchers in areas such as administration, operations, bookkeeping, and marketing.
“At Wishup, we have achieved exponential growth, and this additional round of financing will enable us to further improve the supply end of our platform in India, propelling us to even greater heights,” said Neelesh Rangwani, Co-founder, Wishup. We are excited to bring on more talent from around the country and around the world in a variety of verticals and categories.”
Over the last two years, the business has expanded tenfold by providing the ideal remote-working workers to job searchers.
“We now educate individuals for 70 various jobs, such as marketing, sales, lead generation, digital advertisements, social media, and SEOs. We teach the executives through a series of examinations, followed by video conferencing. The training lasts around 3-4 weeks, depending on the person’s prior skill level “explained Wishup co-founder Neelesh Rangawani.
He believes that only around 3-5 percent of those who pass these examinations, which take into consideration 27 distinct factors, are chosen.
“The globe is seeing a post-lockdown reset, which has transformed circumstances across societies,” said Rajeev Suri, Managing Partner at Orios Venture Partners. There are totally new whitespaces coming up in this freshly evolving environment. One such area is “work from home.”
Wishup’s business model
“Wishup’s unique business model has the potential to produce exponential growth,” he continued, citing the impact of its dual-sided network. Remote working demand is already growing quickly in the developed world in the aftermath of the epidemic, and Wishup can meet it with a supply network that leverages India’s and other emerging nations’ massive talent pools.”

Wishup was founded by Neelesh Rangwani and Vivek Gupta in Delhi, India, with a growing presence in the United States and the United Kingdom.
