The San Francisco-based technology startup Zipy has won the total sum of $2.8 million in seed funding led by Blume Ventures and Together Fund.
Zipy, founded by Vishalini Paliwal, is a platform that helps software teams solve code issues smartly, quickly, and proactively.
The startup also combines session replays, error tracking, and artificial insights into a single platform to assist software teams in proactively discovering, prioritizing, and debugging significant client issues in real-time.
The company offers multiple pricing tiers for its product, ranging from $39 to $79 per month. It also has a free plan and an enterprise package for large groups.
Paliwal, Zipy’s founder has formerly worked at MindTickle, Persistent Systems, and Motorola, as well as serving as a product mentor to several startups.
Zipy solves a major problem by putting developers closer to their clients, allowing them to comprehend and resolve consumer complaints swiftly.
According to the startup, the 2.8 million dollars will be utilized to enhance the capabilities of its technology platform, making bug solutions more proactive, intelligent, and agnostic to technological stacks. The money would also be used to hire people and focus on growing the company’s consumer base.
Freshworks CEO Girish Mathrubootham, who co-founded Together Fund with Eka Software founder Manav Garg, former Matrix Partners investor Shubham Gupta, and former iSpirt and Nasscom fellow Avinash Raghava, said they backed Zipy because the startup is focused on solving a problem that every software team faces today, and Zipy has the potential to create a category.
Sanjay Nath, managing partner of Blume Ventures, on the other hand, stated that any bug has a significant impact on a company in terms of revenue loss, customer churn, and, most crucially, the loss of valuable development time in fixing the bug. Vishalini’s clarity of thought in solving this challenge has been mind-blowing, thanks to her extensive expertise as a developer, product manager, and entrepreneur.
Since its debut, the startup has claimed to have already attracted more than 100 customers around the world in a limited time. The startup’s headquarters are in San Francisco, but it also has a presence in Pune.
