Community-based local social network LocalCircles has received an undisclosed amount of investment from Nadir Godrej, managing director of Godrej Industries. Launched recently by Delhi Chief Minister Mrs.Shiela Dixit, LocalCircles.com enables citizens to connect with local communities, including neighbours, colleagues and teachers, and find assistance during emergencies like fire or accidents through web or mobile phones.
“I thought this was an unusual development. They are trying to bring local communities together, bringing considerable amount of social value, and that attracted me,” said Nadir Godrej, younger brother of group chairman Adi Godrej.
Membership to this free online platform is strictly invitation-based.
