“We were not looking for fresh funding till the end of this year but investors were willing to offer significant premiums, so we took it” [Girish, Freshdesk Founder]

Given that Zendesk went public this year, Freshdesk funding is definitely a big signal towards creating the second big player in this crowded space. From $7mn last year to $31mn – well, there is definitely a premium that investors are betting for (this is Google Capital’s first investment in any Indian startup).
