Cricnwin believes that being a fan isn't just about watching the game, but experiencing, engaging, and evolving along with the game. Cricnwin is a fan engagement app that is solely dedicated to cricket scores & updates, cricket-related news, cricket-related discussions & prediction game. The Gurugram-based company has just completed a seed funding round, where top investors have raised money towards Cricnwin's future and expansion plans.
Rahul Khetrapal, promoter of Pride Group of Casinos, was one such investor in Cricnwin, along with Chinese venture fund ZDream Ventures, and angel investors Ankush Nijhawan, Gaurav Bhatnagar and Manish Dhingra. The amount raised in this seed funding round has not been disclosed as yet.
Nijhawan is the co-founder of business-to-business (B2B) travel portal Travel Boutique Online, while Khetrapal runs several casinos in Goa under the Casino Pride brand. After this initial round of investments secured, the company intends to get further investments, with plans of expanding to countries beyond India.
