Mumbai: Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has made an undisclosed amount of investment in former Housing.com’s chief executive officer and co-founder Rahul Yadav’s start-up Intelligent Interfaces.
“Proud to back Rahul Yadav and Intelligent Interfaces (ii) in helping the Government govern 100x better with the help of technology. Get ready for the (r)evolution!,” Singh posted on his Facebook account with a picture of Yadav, Nishant Singhal and himself.
“A 100x company needs 100x team!,” Yadav said as he shared the post on his Facebook account.
Flipkart co-founders Sachin and Binny Bansal had made an undisclosed amount of early stage investment in Yadav’s company, according to multiple media reports. Yadav is looking to raise $15 million in funding for the company.
Yadav has been working on his new venture after the Housing.com’s directors fired him on account of his objectionable behaviour towards investors and the media in July.
Singh and Singhal launched the fund YouWeCan Ventures in 2015 that has made five to six investments so far. The start-ups include Vyomo (beauty services), Moovo (cargo logistics), Edukart (online education) and Healthians (online healthcare).
