Prior to this funding round, the company had raised an undisclosed sum from JSW Ventures, Blume Ventures and early-to-growth-stage VC firm IvyCap Ventures in July last year. Before that, it had raised its Series A funding from IvyCap Ventures. The company first raised its seed funding in 2013 from Blume Ventures, Mumbai Angels and Chennai Angels.
