Quikr claims to have 30 million monthly unique users across 1,000 cities. Last March Quikr had raised Rs 550 crore led by Investment AB Kinnevik, and Rs 367 crore in September from investors led by Tiger Global.

Quikr was formed in 2008, and has since then indulged in eight rounds of funding. The initial funding came from Matrix partners India, and since then investors like Omidyar Network, Norwest Venture Partners, Nokia Growth Partners, Tiger Global Management, Warburg Pincus and Kinnevik have backed the company.

It competes heavily with OLX in the online classifieds space in India. OLX is backed by South African Internet conglomerate Naspers. The online classifieds space is slowly taking centre-stage in India, and is a huge platform for Indian users to sell their used goods.
