Driffle, a startup that operates a digital gaming marketplace, has raised $3.4 million in a seed funding round led by BEENEXT, along with the participation from Jafco Asia, Taurus Ventures, Better Capital, and White Venture Capital.
Angel investors, including Kunal Shah, Maninder Gulati, Amit Damani, Archana Priyadarshani, and Arun Venkatachalam, among others, also participated in the round.
Founded in 2021 by Chetan Bhardwaj, Gaurav Kumar Jha, Mayank Chawla, and Abhishek Kumar, Driffle says it aims to make online gaming accessible, affordable and safer for gamers globally. The platform sells games, digital gift cards, and gaming points for gamers.
Driffle, which currently operates in India, the UK, and the US, plans to use the raised funding to hire talent, strengthen its tech, product development, and expand its presence into newer markets.
“Being a team of gaming enthusiasts, we thoroughly understand the existing gaps in such marketplaces. At Driffle, we enable instant delivery of our goods digitally, with simplified payment processes, overcoming the complications of payment fraud and cross-border distribution,” Chetan Bhardwaj, Co-founder and CEO of Driffle.
Anirudh Garg, Investor, Beenext, said, “Being a startup built by avid gamers, the Driffle team has identified a significant whitespace within the gaming industry. With their deep passion for problem-solving, the team is addressing customer experience, for buying digital goods, which has not been worked upon so far. Driffle offers the industry-demanded revamp and better customer experience for buyers and sellers internationally through their truly global model of business.”
