The company claims to have launched the country’s first automated pickup-and-drop scooter rental plaform.

The homegrown ride-hailing major Ola has planned to invest $7 million (Rs 45.5 crore) in the parent of online scooter rental platform Vogo has led by.

According to a report in The Economic Times, venture capital firms Stellaris Venture Partners and Matrix Partners also contributed to the investment in Bengaluru-based Vogo Automotive Pvt. Ltd.

Vogo Automotive was set up in 2016 by Anand Ayyadurai, Padmanabhan Balakrishnan, and Sanchit Mittal.

Ayyadurai and Balakrishnan had earlier worked at Flipkart.
