According to Fintrackr’s estimates, Convosight has raised the fresh capital at a post-money valuation of $40 million. The fresh funds have come after a gap of 14 months for Convosight. In April 2020, it had raised $4 million from IvyCap and Surge. The Delhi-based startup was a part of the third cohort of Sequoia Capital’s accelerator programme. Floated by Tamanna Dhamija, Tarun Dhamija and Kartik Bansal, Convosight uses data analytics and machine learning to help admins and brands to create, moderate, grow and monetise their communities on Facebook. According to Convosight, more than 7,000 communities manage over 300 million members on their platform. Fintrackr has also decoded Convosight’s current shareholding structure in which Tamanna and Tarun Dhamija have diluted their respective stakes to 22.66% and 20.78%. Among the investors, IvyCap holds the largest stake of 17.36% followed by Surge, Qualgro and GEM Partners with 12.7%, 10% and 6.41% respectively. It’s worth noting that Tamanna and Tarun Dhamija had also founded digital parenting platform Baby Destination, owned by BD Parenting Infotech Private Limited, in 2016 and raised funds from GEMS Partners and an angel investor in 2017. Regulatory filings also show that the name of ‘BD Parenting Infotech Private Limited’ was changed to ‘Convosight Analytics Private Limited’ and was approved by the members in the annual general meeting of the company held on October 23, 2020. In effect, Baby Destination, owned by BD Parenting Infotech Private Limited, has been rebranded to Convosight (Convosight Analytics Private Limited). Entrackr has sent queries to Convosight to know the current status of Baby Destination. We’ll update the post in case we hear from them.
