Happay, which operates an expense management platform, has received yet another Rs. 1.6 crore (about $250,000) in its Series B funding round from Cupola Venture Opportunities.

This new investment follows the company’s Series B funding round in which it raised about $10 million. That funding round was led by Sequoia Capital, while Singapore’s Axiom Capital, a private equity fund, and AME Cloud Ventures also participated, among others.

The company was founded in the year 2012 by IIT graduates Anshul Rai and Varun Rathi. Happay is a short form for ‘Happy + Payments’. By the end end of 2013, the company reportedly amassed more than 200,000 users – mostly college-going young students. Later, the founders turned towards a B2B model with the aim of helping businesses and corporates manage their expenses minutely.

Happay is currently catering to more than 4,500 businesses across the country such as Aditya Birla Retail Ltd, Health & Glow, YourStory, Subway, Ayurveda hospitals, Unnati NGO, Ibibo group, Uber, Grofers, Urban Ladder, Knowlarity Solutions, etc. The company has a workforce of more than 200 employees.

According to the company’s filings, Happay reported a threefold increase in income in FY17 to Rs 10.09 crore from Rs 3.47 crore in the fiscal year before that.
