Umesh Yadav turns investor, fashion tickles the speedster

As the Colombo Test gets underway, Umesh Yadav has changed modes but not very long ago, development of cricket and startup ecosystem came together, where the speedster ventured into the startup space. He angel funded an undisclosed amount to a Kolkata-based fashion startup called Fashionove, which is an online, hyperlocal fashion search, review and commerce portal.

It is so heart-wrenching to see cricketers venting other options as well. Earlier, Yuvraj Singh’s YouWeCan ventures also helped Rahul Yadav in launching NextHousing.com.

Co-founded by Sharad Kumar and Tanushree Khandelwal, Fashionove boasts of being India’s first location-based, hyperlocal fashion search and review portal, connecting shoppers with local independent fashion stores and boutiques. Umesh Yadav also represents Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
