Rahul Yadav, the former CEO and co-founder of Housing.com has finally announced his new venture, and has smartly christened it “Intelligent Interfaces”. The product — which has been ‘publicly in stealth’, has already received angel funding from some of India’s most prominent entrepreneurs – Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal of Flipkart and Vijay Shekhar Sharma of Paytm
Although no information has been revealed related to the financials of this angel round, the startup is aimed at bringing efficiency in various processes involved within the Indian government. Rahul Yadav said:
The startup will be an interface that will be used by government officials. I see very large businesses that can be created in partnerships with government.
Rahul confirmed the news about angel funding from Sachin and Binny Bansal and also said that the company is not going to take any more money from others, as of now. This puts all the rumors regarding him raising money from other big Indian companies at rest.
In September some time, it was reported that Vijay Shekhar Sharma, CEO and co-founder of PayTM had invested an undisclosed amount in Rahul Yadav’s upcoming startup.
Earlier, in July this year, Rahul Yadav was fired from his role of a Chief Executive Officer from Housing.com by the company’s board after a series of incidents including and not limited to feud with investors, public spats with media and others.
In September, Rahul posted the following on his Facebook wall:
