Moodoo, a get-together mobile application, has raised a seed funding round of £20,000 from The University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School Seed Fund. The fund selected moodoo as one of only three successful applicants for seed funding out of 60 candidates.
Founded by Lucy Gadkari, Vaibhav Sinha and Arjun Gadkari, the company’s vision is to create a more “spontaneous world in which sharing experiences in person remains at the heart of human relationships” — God I’ve been wishing for that to truly happen, at least with social networks.
The company claims that its mobile application will be the simplest and quickest way to connect with friends in real life. moodoo matches you with friends nearby who are in the mood to do a similar thing to you. Then it helps you coordinate the plan and takes you from mood to meet in four taps.
The mobile application is slated to launch in India in this month. It will be available on Android platform as well as on Apple’s iOS.
In a statement, Lucy Gadkari, Founder of moodoo said,
We are thrilled that the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School Seed Fund believed in our vision and we feel humbled to have been chosen as one of the few start-ups to receive their support.
The app is scheduled to launch in India, in January next year. The company is UK‐incorporated although the team is based mostly out of Mumbai.
