Bangalore-based online experiential travel marketplace Thrillophilia has attracted $200,000 in a round led by Hyderabad Angels. iLabs Venture Capital Fund, Navlok Ventures and CIIE (part of IIM-A) have also participated in the round.
Thrillophilia lists over 400 activity-based tours and more than 1,000 off-beat travel experiences. Founded in 2009, Thrillophilia is present in 72 cities and has served more than 50,000 travelers and has over 500 corporate clients. Currently, the company has an 11 member team involved in "curation" of local travel product vendors which includes a lot of physical verification. The latest funding will be mainly used to expand this activity. Besides this, the capital will be invested in technology, digital marketing and expansion. Thrillophilia plans to include 6,000 experiences by December and serve one lakh experience hours a month towards the end of 2014.
Delhi-based iExperience, Mumbai-based Tushky (which also raised an angel round recently) also operate in the same space.
