The funding was backed by existing investor Bhanuka Harischandra of Viridian Fund, as well as Lankan Angel Network’s Angel Fund, and Dr. R de Silv of A1M Capital.

In a short span of time, QuickHelp has seen a tremendous growth with an increasing user base, which resonates well with consumers looking for instant, professional and reliable service providers to get just about anything fixed or repaired at their homes. This will help enable households to do away with the frustrations and disappointments of incomplete jobs and incompetent skills, incurring more time, effort and money. 

Shahid Admani, founder and CEO said, “We are thrilled to have the trust and support of such reputable investors especially at a time where we as a country face various economic challenge. This positive sentiment is a testament to our core purpose of redefining how people consume and provide services. As we continue to work hard to organize this unorganized space, we will continue to invest in our people and technology, and to roll out newer products that will improve the experience for both consumers and service partners.”

QuickHelp will also expand its service categories as well as its reach geographically to ensure consumers have access to numerous services for their homes and for themselves, and eventually to also cover key cities and towns across the country, said its co-founder and head of operations Junaid Admani.

This will also encourage and empower the service providers which form approximately 25% of the employed population in Sri Lanka, paving a way for increased revenue generation and actively participating and deploying their skills, uplifting their standards of living and creating more micro-entrepreneurs. The company’s efforts in this regard earned the Aavishkaar Impact Award at Venture Engine 2021/2022. QuickHelp is actively looking for talent to join their team and pursue this bold vision.
