Done Deal was started by Rohit (2x founder Glitch & Chtrbox), Aneesh (ex Kotak, KKR) and Ankur (ex DotPe and Cars24) earlier this year, with the mission to help startups improve their chances of success by building an operating system of products and services that aid them in their journey from idea to exit. In their first phase, they are tackling the legacy Acquisition process by building a simple, transparent, and trustworthy platform to enable anonymous discovery of vetted startups by potential acquirers across the globe. Since their soft launch earlier this year, Done Deal has gained significant traction, with over 500 startups listed across consumer goods, fintech, SaaS/AI, over 100 marquee corporate buyers and successfully facilitated 2 acquisitions including that of Flatheads.
This funding will be used to accelerate product development and scale the platform to unlock value for more founders. The company has been enabling connections between fast-growing startups and strategic high-growth companies to help unlock growth and now aims to do this at scale by democratizing this access to founders & investors in India and abroad.
Speaking about the Funding, “Done Deal has presented itself in a climate where Indian Startups have seen monumental volatility. We are thrilled to back a platform that is not just facilitating the buying and selling of startup entities but is also fundamentally reshaping the investment landscape and is poised to fill a crucial gap in the startup ecosystem. For Gruhas, Done Deal represents a transformative force in the world of startups.” – Abhijeet Pai, Co-Founder Gruhas
