A Leicester startup has received a boost to develop it’s minimum viable product, thanks to a major grant.

ApnaKey received the largest grant it has ever had through Innovate UK’s Growth Fund Award.

The startup enables users to discover their local cities and perform group booking for activities.

The Innovate UK funding enables the company to turn its website into a full automated web application that aligns with mobile.

Co-founder Harsh Patel said:

“Wow, I’m still feeling amazed by this!

“We’re already halfway through with our final wireframes to be completed next week – all thanks to the excellent work of Palani Sridaran.

“Meanwhile, our team is hard at work polishing up all other ApnaKey products, so everything will be smooth and quick when we launch at the end of the year.”

Earlier this month ApnaKey also won the Santander University Award Fund.
