Sprect Raises INR 50 Lakhs in Angel Funding to Revolutionize C2C Consulting Marketplace

Sprect, a C2C consulting marketplace, has announced the successful raising of INR 50 lakhs in Angel funding from seasoned industry veteran Siddarth (Sid) Shetty, Chief Business Development Officer at ServiceChannel. This funding will be used to accelerate product development, expand the team, drive marketing efforts, and boost sales.

Founded by Mohit Khadaria and Vishal Rupani in August 2023, Sprect (short for Super Connect) aims to bridge the gap between individuals and professionals across various fields, making them easily accessible online. The platform connects users with leading professionals (PROs) for one-on-one interactions, incentivizing PROs to take calls while maintaining their privacy through a comprehensive turnkey system. This system streamlines brand building, scheduling, payment processing, and video calls.

Siddarth Shetty, with over 15 years of leadership experience in Operations, Business Intelligence, Global Services, Business Development, and Marketplace Strategy, brings a wealth of expertise to Sprect. His pivotal role at ServiceChannel, which led to its acquisition by Fortive for $1.2 billion in 2021, highlights his ability to build high-functioning teams and foster innovation within tech-driven ventures. Shetty is also the host of the industry podcast ‘Elevating Brick and Mortar’, where he interviews industry leaders about delivering compelling customer experiences.

“Sprect’s innovative approach to democratizing access to expertise deeply resonates with me,” said Siddarth Shetty. “I see significant untapped potential for consumer-to-consumer advisory services, and it’s great to see that Sprect has already built an impressive pool of professionals without spending a penny on advertising. I’m excited to support their vision of empowering people by enabling them to connect with professionals seamlessly while unlocking new monetization opportunities for PROs from all backgrounds and walks of life. I firmly believe Mohit and Vishal embody the passion and vision necessary to lead this transformative journey, and I am honored for the opportunity to be part of it.”

Mohit Khadaria, Co-founder of Sprect, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “We are thrilled to welcome Sid to our exciting journey. His impressive track record in building exceptional teams, coupled with his pivotal role in contributing to the success of a company achieving unicorn status, is truly inspiring. What truly ignites our excitement is his unwavering passion for developing purpose-driven technology and a vision that seamlessly aligns with ours. We firmly believe Sprect has the potential to revolutionize how people connect and share knowledge, and we eagerly anticipate the transformative journey ahead.”

Sprect’s marketplace features a diverse roster of PROs from companies like Airtel, Google, Times Internet, and WarnerBros.Discovery; prestigious educational institutions like IIM, IIT, ISB, and UCLA; government officials including Principal Income Tax Commissioner and Mumbai Police Commissioner; and even Indian Olympians. This diversity ensures users can connect with someone who has the exact experience they need to achieve their goals.
