WinTaxi, a Ukrainian copycat of Uber, has received an undisclosed amount of funding from Evgeniya Dubinskaya, reported last week tech blog AIN.UA. The business angel has received a minority stake.
The startup, which claims to have registered 400 taxi drivers and 7,000 users since its launch in spring, will use the money to develop new functionalities and relaunch its mobile app.
WinTaxi also intends to extend its coverage — now limited to Kyiv (Kiev) — to such other Ukrainian cities as Dnipropetrovsk (Dnepropetrovsk), Kharkiv (Kharkov) and Odessa.
The startup previously received funding from such other business angels as Alex Lutskiy, who is the CEO of software development company Innovecs.
