With a strong leadership team comprising of Vinayak YB who comes with strong Technology and e-commerce background, and S. Prem Kumar, Koovers is poised to disrupt and conquer this last frontier.

Car owners normally find a workshop close to their locations for maintenance and repair work as sending it to dealers’ run service shop is both expensive and time-consuming. Koovers is tapping the unorganized car maintenance market which will continue to grow as it is an ongoing demand for car owners. At IPV, we invest in businesses that can show sustainable business model with path to profitability. Koovers delivers on both the key parameters,” added Mitesh Shah, co-founder, Inflection Point Ventures.
