Wizcounsel, an online marketplace for freelance legal, tax and accounting experts, has raised one crore in an angel round led by former Indian cricketer, Kapil Dev.
Sunil Kumar Gupta, the founder and chairman of business consulting firm SARC Associates and Manas Fuloria, the chief executive officer and founder of information technology consultancy firm Nagarro are the other participants who took part in the angel around.
The capital will be used for marketing, sales and to strengthen current operation, said a statement issued by the startup.
Operated by Blizzcraft Infotech Pvt. Ltd, Wizcounsel was launched in March this year and is currently running in beta. The platform caters to both individual and small businesses. It offers services ranging from fling income tax to outsourcing legal and accounting work.
Kapil Dev commented on his association with the startup, “I am sure people will start looking for services from CAs and lawyers or even accountants online. Many directories exist, but the thing is there must be a platform to give them much more confidence about they deal with experts for their work.”
