Thailand-based startup Anywhere to Go has today announced raising an undisclosed amount in seed funding led by 500 Startups, with participation from venture capital firm Golden Gate Ventures, and other investors like Mike Prasad, Takeshi Ebihara (Rebright Partners), Samer Karam, Tommy Chia (Super Aces Ventures), and Ravi Agarwal (engageSpark).

The Echelon 2014 alumnus had previously developed iLertU, an app that lets people keep track of their loved ones, and Claim Di, a mobile application for car owners to make accident claims.

Currently, Anywhere to Go is working through the third month of the Thailand-based dtac Accelerate programme, which will be concluded this August 19.

We are very excited to receive funding that will help us accelerate and grow our marketing plan in the future.”

Going forward, Krating Poonpol, a mentor and advisor to Anywhere to Go, will join its board of directors.

Khailee Ng, Venture Partner, Southeast Asia, 500 Startups, also commented on the deal. He said, “… Their team had already done business with 40 per cent of the insurance companies (in Thailand), and knowing they’ve got the support of dtac’s mentor Krating, makes us confident Claim Di is off to a great start to what will be a regional giant.”
