Knocksense Media Services Pvt Ltd has lately garnered capital from the Indian investment platform, Mumbai Angels Network.
The Lucknow-based company will use the funds to strengthen its tech platform and create a content bank for new geographies launch, VC Circle reported citing Knocksense's official statement.
"Raising funds through Mumbai Angels during COVID - 19 has given us confidence and has validated our position to be India's only non-political, non-divisive news platform," Vibhore Mayank, Co-founder at Knocksense, said in an interview with the cited media agency.
Vibhore Mayank and Varul Mayank together established the company in 2016. Varul has previously worked with media company, Hindustan Times.
The company provides news about a range of topics -- environment, FB events, and travel, to name a few. It presently operates in Mumbai, Indore, Jaipur, Goa, Lucknow and Kapur.
"I belong to the event industry and I know the need for brand messaging in smaller cities hence the business model of Knocksense attracted me to invest. The huge scale is a possibility, they are sustaining and expanding since 2016," Navin Talreja, an investor at Mumbai Angels Network, told the cited media agency.
In recent times, many companies in this segment have also bagged investments. Some of them are Dailyhunt, Indian Angel Network-backed PublicVibe, Y Combinator, and Lokal.
