Citizen safety tech platform DROR has raised fresh capital from US-based serial entrepreneur and investor Gopi Latpate and Inflection Point Venture. The Gurugram-based firm said it plans to infuse the fresh funds towards expanding user base, diversify and enhance its services and product offerings. The company has raised half a million since its beginning in 2018.
Dhiraj Nauhbar, DROR’s Co-Founder and CEO said in a statement, “We are a citizen safety-tech app that aims to aid distressed citizens providing accessible tools to be safe and secure at any time. Our Social distancing tracker, released in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak was a fine example of how technology will take precedence in our lives for the time to come. We will be using the funds raised towards building a technology-driven platform for innovations and enterprise solutions.”
The platform is available for both android and iOS and it creates a community-based networking platform with access to emergency services and healthcare facilities for citizens in distress. Seeing the present realities, DROR has introduced ‘Social Distancing Tracker’ feature which is available for android users that allows them to keep a check on their social distancing scores in real time. For the company, this feature is just an extension of safety features for its users.
Gopi Latpate, Lead Investor, said, “In light of COVID-19, DROR was amongst the first ones to roll out a special social distancing feature. With the first-movers advantage, DROR has been constantly enhancing its offerings and expanding its user base as people understand the role of technology in ensuring citizen safety. We seek to continue towards building solutions that gives us an edge in the industry.”
The social distancing feature of the platform will come in handy for business that are opening up gradually as it will help them to maintain social distancing in their premises. The company said they have already onboarded a few clients for the same. The app has been downloaded over 50K times by B2C users and many more clients since its launch in February this year. DROR is now planning to expand its business overseas and has been preparing for the same.
