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.

Ayyadurai and Balakrishnan had earlier worked at Flipkart.
The company claims to have launched the country’s first automated pickup-and-drop scooter rental platform. Vogo remotely tracks and monitors scooters in real-time, which in theory makes the vehicles Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Vogo is presently operating in Mysuru, Manipal, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad.
