Gurugram-based Reccy Adventures has raised Rs 3 crore in a seed round from Jaydeep Barman and Kallol Banerjee, founders of cloud-kitchen startup Rebel Foods.

The startup has recently launched the beta version of a travel portal. The website lets users compare travel itineraries and rates from various local travel agencies. Reccy Adventures’ website also provides content on important travel essentials, travel checklists, and workouts one can do to equip for mountaineering or river rafting trips. 

The freshly raised funds will be utilized to add an e-commerce branch for selling activewear, accessories, and gears needed in adventure activities. The platform will also offer coaching, training, recovery, and local sports for “sport-specific communities”. Another focus is also on rolling out their own line of outdoor-focused activewear range.  

In a release, Anirban Sen, Co-founder, Reccy Adventures said, “We have seen some great interest and growth since we set out, and this investment will help us build the sports-and-outdoor category in India. Our first product is a one-stop destination for anybody who is thinking of an outdoor or adventure trip, from the discovery of something new to the delivery of the experience. We have brought the entire stakeholder ecosystem onto one platform, to facilitate ease of experience.” 

The startup was established in December 2019 by Anirban, Amit Chowdhury, Siddhartha Chatterjee, and Tapas Pal who are passionate about outdoor adventures and have experiences in Indian Air Force, private equity investments, tech and pharma research.

Jaydeep Barman, Co-founder and CEO, Rebel Foods said in the release, “We see huge potential for the category with Indians looking at options to break out of their sedentary routines. As an ardent mountaineer and footballer, I can vouch for the fact that Reccy with its range of products and services will change the way that sports and outdoors are viewed in India.”

The travel and tourism industry witnessed a significant setback due to the COVID-19 induced lockdowns last year as well as amid the second wave. Reccy Adventures is speculating on pent-up travel demand that is anticipated to arise once the restrictions are eased. 

The startup would be competing with other travel providers including Delhi-based Tripoto, DIY travel booking startup Pickyourtrails, and several others currently operating in the space.

Reccy Adventures appears to be an interesting platform for travel and adventure enthusiasts offering uniques services. Once the current su=ituation improves, I’m sure the company would have great opportunities for growth. My best wishes to the team of Reccy Adventures.
