Inflection Point Ventures has announced an investment of INR 2 Crores in Pumpumpum – a Fintech mobility startup. The funds will be allocated for growth in operations, geographical reach, technological advancements, marketing endeavors and overall organizational development for greater visibility, and sustained success of the enterprise.

Vinay Bansal, Co-Founder, Inflection Point Ventures says, “India is now a country with the highest population, the biggest need one has after roti kapda aur makaan is transportation. Two-wheeler for a bachelor and 4-wheeler for a family is not a convenience but a necessity. However, only about 8% of Indian households (approximately 1 in 12) own cars. Hence the notion of leasing out pre-owned cars is bound to succeed. And Pumpumpum is category creator and leader, in the market of leasing pre-owned cars”.
