As per Fintrackr’s estimates, Powerplay has been valued at around $75 million or Rs 600 crore (post allotment). This round appears to be an ongoing one and the company is likely to raise more capital and its valuation will change accordingly.

In July 2021, the company had raised $5.2 million in its Series A led by Accel Partners and Sequoia Capital India’s Surge. The Bengaluru-based startup was a part of the fifth cohort of Surge’s accelerator program.

Founded in 2019 by Iesh Dixit and Shubham Goyal, Powerplay simplifies site-to-office communication to manage construction and architectural projects. It enables construction companies to track progress, attendance and material management, invoices, issue tracking, and budget management.

According to Sensor Tower, its app has 500K downloads and Powerplay claims to have helped 500 construction companies in the past three years.

  1. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
