Done Deal, a data-driven platform, has raised $800,000 in its pre-seed round led by Gruhas, a VC fund launched by Nikhil Kamath and Abhijeet Pai. The round also saw participation of several strategic early-stage venture capital firms, such as The BarberShop with Shantanu – Raisers Edge, WFC, Capital-A, Dezerv Innovation Fund, ICE.VC, and prominent angel investors.
The proceeds will be used to ramp up product development and scale the platform.
Started by Rohit, Aneesh and Ankur, Done Deal helps startups by building an operating system of products and services that aid them in their journey from idea to exit. In the first phase, it tackles the acquisition process by building a simple, transparent, and trustworthy platform to enable anonymous discovery of vetted startups by potential acquirers.
Since its launch earlier this year, Done Deal claims to have gained significant traction, with over 500 startups listed across consumer goods, fintech, SaaS and AI and facilitated two acquisitions including Flatheads. In July, apparel brand Styched acquired Flatheads in an all equity deal.
Last week, Gruhas co-led $11 million pre Series B round in elder care platform Age Care Labs.
