Tookitaki had earlier raised $200,000 from Blume Ventures, India Internet Group, Harvard Angels and Centre for Innovation Incubation Entrepreneurship (CIIE) Ahmedabad in August 2013.

The company also seems to now have expanded its offerings to offer data analytics services like mobile targeting, sales strategies, and inventory along with consumer behaviou predictions across verticals.
