My First Cheque signs its ‘first cheque’ for MeriCAR.com

My First Cheque, a seed fund, announced its first investment since their launch in December 2010.

My First Cheque encourages young and budding entrepreneurs with ideas to start their own companies and plays an integral role in seeding and mentoring them to success. My First Cheque exemplifies the unique “co-fun investoring” model. Co-fun investing is an abbreviation for co-founder investing, which entails evaluating and entering a business as a co-founder and not as an investor.  Through this, My First Cheque affirms their role in mentoring and guiding entrepreneurs besides providing funds.

My First Cheque signed their first investment deal with MeriCAR.com, India’s first dedicated car servicing web portal.  This first investment evidently highlights My First Cheque’s commitment towards encouraging entrepreneurs and being the “first investor” in a company. Commenting on the deal, Mr. Gautam Sinha, Partner, My First Cheque said “I am extremely delighted to see an avalanche of unique ideas in the Indian entrepreneurial market. MeriCAR.com showcases the creativity and “making things happen” ability of the Indian entrepreneur.

MeriCAR.com aims to help car owners to search the neighbourhood car service centre, connect to the right car workshop and save on car servicing bill. “We are happy that My First Cheque recognized the potential of our idea and has taken the leap with us and we are even happier to be the “first cheque” of   My First Cheque as we are starting this journey with a partner who knows the “pains” of starting!! With this investment, we look forward to strengthening our team and expanding our network further across the country and servicing a larger base of car users”, says Rakesh Sidana, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, MeriCAR.com.
