An Indian sports nutrition brand, DAAKI has recently secured an undisclosed amount of funds in angel funding round from a Bangalore based prominent investor Rohan Agila (Business Partner, Capvent Advisors).
Daaki, is a Bangalore based youth oriented brand that characterizes itself as being a game changer in the sports nutrition industry. They aim to manifest themselves as a brand that connects with real athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The funds secured will majorly be used in research and product development, in order to give athlete nutrition beyond existing standards. They will be leveraged to establish the upcoming brand as a promising business entity as well as help in expanding its all-new supplement product line.
Mr. Amit Dabas, founder of Daaki is a well-known Business Analyst and holds a wide experience in the field while he was working with renowned companies like Wipro Technologies, Lloyds TSB and Iry Tech Pvt. Ltd. He completed his graduation from Jaypee University of Information and Technology in B-Tech. However, he holds no formal education in Bio Chemistry or Sports Nutrition field, but was able to translate his prior athletic experience along with 5 years of R&D period with manufacturers and application labs across India into building this totally new concept.
Speaking about the funding, Amit Dabas, Founder, Daaki said, “Our very first task was to create a unique identity that would resonate with the consumers and at the same time get our supplementation ideas on the table. It is a fresh way to look at athlete’s food. Daaki has Re-Engineered sports nutrition. With our investors backing us strongly, we can get the message out for sure.”
Commenting on the funding, Rohan Agila said, “A company like Daaki is an innovator in itself. Be it design, be it quality, we have a strong hunch that they will push beyond their limits to deliver the best. We are honestly looking forward to working closely with the Daaki team as they are sure to expand the supplementary platform and grow into new markets very soon.”
Daaki plans to focus and expand its marketing operations pan India as well as overseas when they close next round soon.
