[Funding Alert] SuperShare raises $6.5M from Lachy Groom, Accel India, and Lightspeed


Content sharing app SuperShare has raised $6.5 million in its first round of funding from Lachy Groom, Accel India and Lightspeed. Content creators Tanmay Bhat, MythPat and several others from influencer management agencies across India also participated in the round.

The Bengaluru-based firm, which has operated in stealth mode until now, will use the funds to develop its product, among other things.

SuperShare was founded in 2019 by Sagar Modi, an IIT-Bombay graduate, and Advaith Vishwanath, who was part of Accel’s investment team. In the past two years, the content creator economy has grown by leaps and bounds. While most of us were cooped up in our homes consuming large chunks of content online, creators across digital platforms were getting millions of views on their videos.

SuperShare is currently secretly working with a few select creators in an invite-only program and will open access in the next few months.

Sagar Modi, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SuperShare, said, “We’re creating the best way to share content. of the internet and with the ever-changing social media landscape and the growing importance of chat/community apps, we believe there is an opportunity to increase intimacy and efficiency in the way content is shared.” 

Many platforms have emerged to represent influencers and markets, including Gurugram-based Wobb. Pocket Aces, which primarily created short videos and shows on YouTube, also started representing several influencers.
