— A Digital Platform For Blue-Collar Jobs Raises Funds From Khosla Ventures & Others

The startup founded by Madhav Krishna is backed by Y Combinator and works with new-age companies like Zomato and Swiggy to plug the low-skilled worker gap. 

According to a news report, e-commerce, hyperlocal and online food aggregator startups have fuelled the rise of low-skilled jobs in India with 200,000 jobs, a report indicates.

As per a blue collar workforce report by BetterPlace, this segment will see 20 lakh jobs over the next six months.
