Chandigarh (India), February 4: Chandigarh-based share-mobility platform Fico mobility announced on Monday of raising an undisclosed amount in seed funding from investment firm SR Consultancy Services.

Harjeet Singh, Founder, Fico Mobility, in his statement said that his company plans to utilize these funds in upgradation and expansion.

Fico Mobility started in 2021 is a self-drive car-sharing platform. The company offers easy and hassle-free solutions to some of the most common problems faced by urban commuters, by offering them to choose share mobility, a mode of transportation that is more affordable, reliable, clean, and efficient.

“During the last few decades, India has seen an unprecedented boost to its urban infrastructure, particularly its mobility system. Despite that, the urban centers are under tremendous pressure due to our cities witnessing an increase in private vehicles and lesser use of public modes of transportation.

At Fico mobility, we are addressing these growing challenges by enabling efficient asset utilization by transitioning from a model of ownership of private assets to users of shared assets.” Harjeet added.

At Fico mobility, the rides are cost-efficient and hassle-free. The mobile application can be downloaded from Google Playstore and Apple Store. After a quick signup, the user is ready to share any car of his/her choice without worrying about its maintenance, fuel, or insurance. The company hosts pre-owned cars from all segments on its platform and offers users to share them on a short to long-term basis.

The car owner (host) can get on board by following a quick process. Being a part of the FICO ecosystem comes with many perks. It not only helps the host to mitigate the depreciation cost of the car but also creates a second stream of income with it.

The company intends to create a cohesive ecosystem where the hosts (car owners) and users can be seamlessly connected through data for an improved user experience.

The company also highlighted the untapped potential of India’s shared mobility market. The segment was valued at $1,025.8 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 56.8% during the forecast period (2020–2025).

Founder Harjeet Singh looks very optimistic about the future. He said, “We are moving towards a smart city culture. Apart from these optimistic numbers, the fact that people are slowly moving away from a typically costly, inequitable, and inefficient way of owning a private vehicle that makes this segment so promising.”

  4. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

  5. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to know so much approximately this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I feel that you can do with a few percent to pressure the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  6. In the great scheme of things you actually receive a B- for hard work. Where you actually misplaced me personally was first in the details. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more true here. Having said that, let me tell you just what did work. The article (parts of it) can be incredibly powerful and that is most likely the reason why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can easily notice the jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am definitely not confident of just how you appear to unite the points which in turn make the conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your position but wish in the near future you connect your facts much better.

  7. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
