HYDERABAD: Technology startup HUG Innovations has raised $5 million (33 crore) at live instant funding of TiE-Hyderabad - The Guardian Angel held here on Saturday.



Out of the 4 startups which pitched their idea to pin-up investors, HUG succeeded in raising the money in series A Funding.

Cargo Exchange, a platform for cargo-owners, truck owners and intermediaries to trade easily, came very close to a closure as they were offered 1.4 crore as funding, though the deal on the stage did not get through due to differential opinion on valuation.
