Mobile assistance app Bucker which provides price comparison and booking of multiple on-demand services such as cab booking, food deliver and recharge on a single app has raised an undisclosed amount in seed-round from Silicon Valley based angels and 50k ventures. Vedantu co-founder Pulkit Jain, Munish Jauhar of IAN and Rohit Narang of Singapore based 314 Capital are the other backers of the company incubated at the IIIT-Hyderabad.
Bucker serves as an assisting layer over existing apps and has partnered with on-demand auto-booking app Jugnoo and is integrated with Uber, Ola, food delivery apps FoodPanda, Faaso’s, Swiggy, TinyOwl as well as recharge platforms Paytm, Freecharge and Mobikwik. The app compares prices and pushes coupons based on data pulled across all these apps.
“This round will be utilized to support the payroll of our team. The company will add e-commerce and entertainment under the categories,” said Ravneet Singh, co-founder of Bucker which was incorporated in November 2015.
