Truecaller is a phone book (remember those?) for the mobile age. Its database of verified mobile phone numbers makes it easier to get in touch with businesses and individuals, and also acts as a spam blocker to avoid PPI calls and the like. The company, founded in 2009, is adding 2.4 million users in India every month. In February it raised $18.8 million in a round led by Sequoia India.
