"The belief demonstrated by these investors - all seasoned business professionals themselves - in Treebo despite the current challenging times is precious for us. They are taking a bet on the long term prospects and the strong fundamentals of the business, which is hugely encouraging. We are excited about not just their capital but also the valuable advice and guidance they can offer," said Sidharth Gupta, co-founder, Treebo, commenting about the investment.

“As investors in the hospitality and real estate space ourselves, we understand the role, technology and a good brand play in the success of any hospitality business. Treebo has developed strong capabilities in both these areas. That's what attracted us towards the company," said Deepak Parayanken, deputy managing director of Mozambique Holdings, who led this angel round.

In a bid to diversify its revenue streams, Treebo, in August, this year, announced the launch of its software-as-a-service (SaaS) business called Hotel
