Basic Information

Founded by Satya Prabhakar, Sulekha which is headquartered in Chennai started its digital classifieds operations in the year 2007. There are roughly 1,200 categories on the Sulekha platform. Top services include Home Services (home improvement etc), Education (coaching and training services among others) and Lifestyle (events and entertainment, for instance).. Using technology and domain intelligence, the platform seeks to understand the user need in detail and matches it to verified service professionals who are profiled. The service is free to use for consumers and service professionals pay the platform for performance in the form of verified, matched service requests. Sulekha does not assign a professional to do the job, like other services platforms. The company takes a consumer's service request and matches the need with multiple service providers. Next, service providers compete for the business - the consumer is given a choice of three service providers and she or he picks one of them. See more
