Cloud platform Neverinstall said it has received around $375,000 in seed funding led by deep-tech venture capitalist Speciale Invest.  

The company said it will use the funding received to build an engineering team to develop its platform.  

“We aspire to offer an innovative and advanced cloud platform for our customers that offers cost-effective and efficient solutions,” Ram Pasala, co-founder of Neverinstall, said.  

Speciale Invest is a seed-stage venture capital firm that was founded in 2017 by Vishesh Rajaram and Arjun Rao.  


Microlending platform Pocketly has raised an undisclosed amount of funding led by marquee angels.  

Ashneer Grover, founder of BharatPe; Jaimin Bhatt, CFO of Kotak Bank; and Siddharth Somaiya, founder of Organic Riot, pooled in cash in this round.  

Other investors were micro VCs such as Prophetic Ventures, Dholakiya Ventures, RIIDL, and Scale VC.  

“This funding will fuel our mission of providing credit to the deserving young market of India, which cannot access credit through existing traditional financial institutes,” Aarav Bhatia, co-founder of Pocketly, said.
