Dunzo last raised $12.3 million in a funding round led by Google, along with participation from Blume Ventures and Aspada, in December 2017. Prior to this, in November 2016, Dunzo had raised $1.2 million in a funding round led by Aspada.

Dunzo’s latest investor Mumbai-based Alteria Capital was founded by former InnoVen Capital executives Vinod Murali and Ajay Hattangdi, in 2017.

Some of Alteria Capital’s recent investments include fashion startup Universal Sportsbiz, scooter rental startup Vogo, edtech startup Toppr, and RAW Pressery.

Earlier last month, Alteria Capital marked the second close of its maiden fund at ₹625 crore. The fund called Alteria Capital India Fund I has set a target corpus of ₹1,000 crore, including a greenshoe option of ₹200 crore.
