Ahmedabad, India – based startup Clientjoy, a SaaS platform, raised US$ 800K in Pre-Series A funding on 8 November 2020, from GVFL (Gujarat Venture Finance Limited), an early-stage venture capital firm.
Founded in 2019 by Abhishek Doshi, Anupama Panchal, Shashwat Bhatt, Yash Shah and Yash Shah, Clientjoy offers Client Life-Cycle Management Software for modern agencies, services companies, and freelancers to manage Leads, Proposals, Clients, Invoicing, and Revenues under a single roof. The company was funded and supported by other angel investors and CIIE –a startup incubator established by IIM Ahmedabad, during its initial time.
Yash Shah, co-founder & CEO of Clientjoy said, “At Clientjoy we are excited about the funding from GVFL – it comes at a time when we are looking to scale and grow. Today, Agencies & freelancers have to devote significant time and resources just to manage clients, since client management happens across multiple tools and platforms and. They have no idea about either the bottlenecks or growth enablers because most of the data is not captured and even that which is, is spread across various platforms. Clientjoy addresses and solves this issue. The investment will be used to grow the company’s sales, marketing and engineering to expand its product offering”.
Clientjoy claims to serve over 1900 Agencies in Digital Marketing, IT-Service and Design Agency verticals across US, India, Europe, Australia and South-east Asia.
What Investors have to say
“As early investors, we at CIIE have seen Yash & his team grow over the years & establish Clientjoy (earlier known as Gridle) in the market, through sustained efforts on product development and customer engagement. Given the pandemic, recent developments in the SaaS for productivity & client management tools market have been encouraging and Clientjoy is at an inflection point in their journey. Their unique blend of team experience with a razor-sharp focus on customer problems would help them capture a decent market going forward. We wish them the best,” said early investor and board member at CIIE, Chintan Antani.
Mihir Joshi, President of GVFL said, “We are excited to partner with Clientjoy that has been at the forefront of digital SaaS workflow management tools for enterprises, freelancers and agencies.
