Speaking on the investment, Anurag Ramdasan, Principal, 3one4 Capital, said,  “Koo is a very valuable and powerful platform in the Indian context. Social platforms focused on India need to be highly contextualized to the audience here beyond languages and must include community, moderation and content relevance.” 

“Both Aprameya and Mayank are proven entrepreneurs and have built large internet businesses before. We are happy to partner with them to make this atmanirbhar vision become a reality and to build sustainable and socially relevant platforms,” Anurag added.

Commenting on the fundraise, Koo, Co-founder & CEO, Aprameya Radhakrishna said, “Existing microblogging platforms have not been able to grow beyond the English-speaking population. Koo enables the free expression of thoughts and opinions for every Indian irrespective of the language preference. Koo will amplify the daily voices of India on an Indian platform.”
