Smursh Ecommerce which runs Klip.in, a social discovery and curation tool for e-commerce, has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from members of Mumbai Angels and other angel investors. While the amount raised by the company was not disclosed, the investment is pegged between Rs 25 to 50 lakh. Investors include Anirudh Damani, Arihant Patni, Aseem Chauhan, Chintaka Rantatunga, Jeffrey Keng Yew Lai, Manoj Gupta, Ravi Kiran, Sanjay Mehta and Shravan Shroff. The funds will be used for product improvement (it recently revamped its UI) and to build its tech and marketing resources.

Maneesh Madambath, co-founder at Klip informs us that the funds raised is part of the earlier funding round in July 2013, where it had raised an undisclosed amount of funding from VentureNursery. Note that Klip is also a  season 2 graduate from VentureNursery’s acceleration program that concluded in April 2013.

The company had also changed its monetization strategy. It does not sell any products from its website  and the tie ups with the vendors mentioned above are no more. Klip is now focusing on product discovery on categories such as fashion, home and lifestyle. It has also removed books and mobile section from the website.

Langhar, a platform that helps users discover food cooked by people in their homes, has raised  $150,000 funding after winning ARK Challenge, held every year at Northwest Arkansas. Langhar is also a graduate from TLabs’ Spring 2013 batch ,which also invested about $20,000 (Rs 10L) in this venture. It also claims that it’s generating roughly $2,000 per month in individual subscriptions and $10,000 each quarter for business subscriptions. Currently the service operates only in Delhi.

The company intends to build a community and marketplace for anyone who is interested in cooking and earning out of it. People interested in trying new and different food can get touch with these cooks on Langhar and dine at their place. It is unclear how far have they looked into the safety of going to a stranger’s home to dine. It provides web or mobile access to home cooked meals for pickup, delivery or dine-in experience in the chef’s home.
