18 January 2018, Bengaluru. Awign – an ‘outsourcing by crowdsourcing’ platform that taps into India’s growing college student workforce has raised an ₹5cr. seed round of investment from Unitus Ventures (formerly Unitus Seed Fund) and other angel investors.

Awign enables businesses to outsource aspects of their core operations and sales that require human workforce in distributed locations at high volumes, converts them into virtual internships for India’s growing student community. The startup now plans to expand its presence in 12,000 pin codes across India, partner with 100 corporates and startups and tap into over 500,000 students.

“We are excited to be working with Awign to support their growth. Majority of business operations in India continue to be offline-driven, requiring high-intensity human intervention at all stages. Awign’s strong technology-enabled platform and a growing network of well-trained college temp workforce have successfully streamlined these operations, minimized turnaround time and completely eliminated setup and operation costs in multiple locations,” said Will Poole, Co-founder and Managing Partner, Unitus Ventures (formerly Unitus Seed Fund).

“When we talk about running operations at a large scale, hiring feet-on-street and managing attrition, incessant human interaction forms the most crucial aspect of it. So, the problem is quite apparent, where the solution is not providing huge manpower to enterprises, but getting work done end to end, in a timely and efficient manner. At Awign, we are building the future of work, where businesses can execute core operations across geographies in just a few clicks,” said Annanya Sarthak, Cofounder of Awign.
