NEW DELHI: Hubhopper - India's largest platform for Podcasts and Publishers, and the bridge that makes content easy, uniting consumers of varied content with content creators of all sizes and shapes under a managed interface - has recently raised a round of strategic funding from Unit-E Ventures.
Hubhopper has had a dream run over the past several months, including being inducted into the prestigious Apple accelerator and cracking major partnerships with large Indian phone manufacturers and service providers, as well as implementing smart organic growth strategies that saw the product topping both Google Play and the App Store at the same time.
Unsurprisingly, Gautam Anand, the company's Founder and CEO, was featured in Forbes' prestigious 30 Under 30 Asia list in 2018 in the Mass Media, Advertising and Marketing category. This latest achievement is indicative of his and the company's vision and progress.
As Gautam explains, "The vision of this company is a simple one: making content easy in all its forms for everyone involved."
The core of the product standardises the online content industry by helping users personalise their content-consumption experience based on personal preferences and mood, while simultaneously giving publishers of every segment access to a plug-and-play SAAS platform, thereby letting them focus on their core competency of content creation.
Hubhopper boasts a powerful and experienced set of legendary advisors on its panel such as iconic Harvard start-up guru Michael J. Skok, CEO and MD of Universal Music Devraj Sanyal, serial investor Jaideep Krishna, Sanjeev Bhikchandani of Naukri fame, and now: Unit-E Ventures.
Leveraging off this strategic dilution and funding, Hubhopper is now poised to radically grow their footprint and leadership team.
