“The funding will be utilized to grow our team further and build on the product which will increasingly target clients who need ‘search’ but cannot afford chunkier enterprise solutions,” informed Pavan. Manav Garg, an IAN member will be joining the board. The team strength of Unbxd currently stands at 11 and being a reason for the investment, Manav told us, “We really liked the passionate young duo of Pavan and Prashant. Apart from the team, the ‘search in cloud’ space excites us and is something very relevant to the market currently.”
