DusMinute funding

DusMinute, a startup providing supermarket, pharmacy, and home services to residents of gated communities, has raised $1.1 million in pre-Series A funding led by Indian Angel Network (IAN) along with participation from some high net-worth individuals.

Established in 2017, the Bengaluru-based startup sets up in-society stores enabling residents to walk in and buy products, or order them via its app and get them delivered to their homes in a few minutes. It also provides home services such as plumbers and electricians among others.

Presently, the company runs in 19 gated communities built by Sobha, Provident, SNN, Shriram, Brigade, Prestige, and Godrej in Bengaluru that have about 36,000 homes.

“We are developing a sustainable ecosystem and reducing carbon footprint by serving hyper-locally. The funding will allow us to expand to over 80,000 households and also to deepen our integrated service offering,” said Apoorva Mishra, CEO of DusMinute.

According to the company’s website, DusMinute is India’s first hyperlocal managed living platform which brings all the amenities and requirements of residents to their doorstep. With their stores located within the community complexes offering retail items and a mobile app for delivery and all other home and personal services, they are redefining modern urban living by providing hotel-like convenience at home.
