New Delhi, May 27 (PTI) Homescreen Network (HSN), a vernacular digital media venture, Monday said it has raised USD 2 million (about Rs 14 crore) in funding from SAAMA Capital.
HSN, which is promoted by GrowthStory, will use the series A funding to "build a highly scalable Professional Generated Content (PGC) platform to cater to India's rapidly growing vernacular audience", a statement said.
