UrbanClap, which has now expanded to Singapore, Australia, and UAE, today revealed that it had renamed itself as an Urban Company.
The new umbrella brand captures the company’s ambition to be a horizontal gig marketplace with a global footprint across categories such as home repairs, beauty, wellness, and maintenance.
Urban Company co-founder Abhiraj Bhal said it is important to have a brand that is globally acceptable. “From the neighborhoods of Darling Harbour in Sydney to the condominiums of Gurgaon, Urban Company is a simple name with universal appeal. What remains unchanged is our commitment to offering reliable and affordable services at home,” Bhal said in a statement. This is enabled by working closely with our service partners, helping them with up-skilling, financing, insurance, product procurement, etc., transforming them into micro-service entrepreneurs, he said.
UrbanCompany, which was launched in Delhi in the year 2014 with a handful of service professionals as UrbanClap, now claims to be the India and UAE largest home service company.
In the last five years, it has expanded to three countries – Singapore, Australia, and UAE from India.
