The deal site raised $17 million in its second round of
funding from Mayfield Fund and Norwest Venture Partners, Nokia Growth Partners
and Intel Capital, in 2011.

Formed in 2010, the daily deal website was formed by Germany-based
Group Buying Global AG and Smile Interactive Group after they acquired
Gurgaon-based Wanamo Marketing Pvt Ltd that ran Wanamo.com. The website was
then re-branded and launched in August 2010 as Dealsandyou.com. The company
raised $1.5 million from Group Buying Global AG.
