Bhal, Chandra, and Khaitan got the second bite of the cherry with Urban- Clap. Their first ventures—Buggi for Chandra, and Cinema Box for Bhal and Khaitan—did not do well. But UrbanClap, a handyman and personal service app, has had a different story. The app lists over 100 services—salon and spa is the most popular, say the co-founders—and is present in eight Indian cities. The founders plan to expand to Jaipur, Chandigarh, and to its first overseas location, Dubai. The company raised $21 million last year, taking the total funds it raised to $60 million. Bhal says it is good money.
