Info Edge, an online classified company, has been actively involved in the Indian startup ecosystem. The company has businesses across domains including online educations classifieds shiksha.com and online matrimony classifieds jeevansaathi.com, apart from Naurkri.com and 99acres.com.

Some of Info Edge’s major investments in the Indian startup ecosystem include foodtech startup Zomato, an edtech startup Meritnation, online policy aggregator PolicyBazaar, and Happily Unmarried, among others.

In August 2018, it was reported that Info Edge and WaterBridge Ventures invested in healthtech startup MedCords.
