Bengaluru: Bueno, a Gurgaon-based food technology startup, announces its recent fund raising of $600,000 in a pre-Series A round from an undisclosed angel investor. The freshly raised funds will empower Bueno to hire new talent, technology up gradation, business expansion and offer hazzle-free user friendly processes which will result in better customer satisfaction. The company is also planning to increase the number of orders and deliveries by 20 times in the days to come.
Commenting on the occasion, Rohan Arora, Founder, Bueno says, “We are quite excited to receive this pre-series A round of funding which will definitely help us in converting our dreams to reality. We intend to build a one stop global food shop and own the end to end customer experience with world class Food delivered on a seamless technology platform - a premium experience for the customers. Apart from this we are also aiming for sustainable long term business and not in a hurry for mindless growth. We want to build a business of repute and scale by sticking to our core values of Goodness - for Self, Society & the Planet”.
“For us Quality & Sustainability is paramount and defines everything that we do at Bueno. We are also very proud that we are an Indian Brand with global ambitions and proudly take the Tri-colour as the colours of our logo. We intend to create lasting value and hence, in the last three years we have seen many ups and downs in our journey and have been on the verge of closing down at least 5-6 times. We have evolved our business model each time to come out stronger and were determined to stick it out & deliver a sustainable business model which can build a great & lasting business,” added Rohan.
