Consumer IoT Startup Witworks Raises Funding to Launch Smart Wearable Platform, Blink

The Bangalore-based company announced it has raised seed investment round from Fireside Ventures, InvestoPad, P39 Capital, and a syndicated group of angel investors, including Anupam Mittal (Shaadi.com Founder), Pranay Jivrajka (COO, Ola Cabs), Maninder Gulati (Chief of Strategy, Oyo), Abhinav Sinha (COO, Oyo Rooms) and top executives from ITC.

The funding will be used for development and launch of Blink -the company’s wrist-wearable platform designed to provide access to contextual information and services on-the-go.

Witworks has developed both—the hardware and the software of the device. The voice-enabled operating system of Blink called Marvin, is developed on Android.
