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. Prior to this, it offered social targeting and ad optimization, that worked by querying data points from social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, among others to find purchasing patterns of consumers on the web.

Based on this data, consumers were grouped to map behavioural patterns in real-time using machine learning techniques, to deliver targeted ads on different online platforms. The company now claims to be working on a platform that predicts how consumers find out about specific brands or products.

Founded in 2010 by Abhishek Chatterjee and Jeeta Bandopadhyay, Tookitaki claims to have clients like Sunsilk, Biba, Yatra.com, Paytm, Quikr and Ford among others.
