Vinay Ahuja, Partner, assisted Eatigo, an online restaurant reservation platform that aims to fill up empty restaurant tables at off-peak hours by providing discounts to customers. DFDL assisted Eatigo with the Pre-Series C round led by existing investor TripAdvisor, bringing its total external funding to over USD 25 million. The closing of this Pre-Series C funding provides greater scope to Eatigo on its market expansion ambitions in Asia.
Vinay was highly praised by Mr. Siddhanta Kothari, Co-Founder & Group CFO of Eatigo for his “always there” attitude and readiness to be of assistance, even at unusual hours. The Eatigo team looks forward to a continuing relationship with DFDL in the coming years.
Eatigo has been a long standing client for DFDL, having assisted them earlier with the structuring of its regional expansion across Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Singapore and more. This included legal advice on the establishment of its Thai international headquarters and the reorganization of off-shore affiliated entities to ensure the maximization of incentive benefits. Previously in 2016, Vinay also assisted Eatigo on the completion of its Series B round of funding.
