HalaPlay Gets ₹9 Crore Funding From Entrepreneur Milan Ganatra


Bengaluru based fantasy gaming start-up HalaPlay recently raised ₹9 Crore funding from Milan Ganatra Ventures. This investment marks the entry of Milan Ganatra, founder and former CEO of Miles Software into the Indian online gaming industry.

Milan Ganatra started his journey as an entrepreneur with Miles Software back in 1998. He later sold the company to Ebix Cash in 2008. Recently, he launched ‘1Silver Bullet,’ a fin-tech startup with an investment of ₹7.2 crore. He also invested in a school fee financing start-up named ‘Financepeer’, although the amount of investment is undisclosed. An investment analytics platform ‘Finalyca’ had also received an investment worth $2,00,000 from Ganatra.
