Stellaris, Kalaari lead a ₹24 crore funding round in fintech startup Signzy

Bengaluru-based fintech startup Signzy has raised ₹24 crore in a funding round led by Stellaris Venture Partners and Kalaari Capital.

Other angel investors that participated in the round include Rajan Anandan from Google, Dilip Khandelwal from SAP Labs India, Amrish Rau, CEO of PayU India, and Vikram Chachra, Partner, 8i Ventures.

As part of the deal, Alok Goyal, Partner at Stellaris Venture Partners, will be joining the board of Signzy.

The funds raised will be used to boost technology stack, broaden product portfolio, and expand globally.

Signzy was founded by IIT Delhi alumnus Ankit Ratan, IIT Kharagpur alumnus Ankur Pandey, and Arpit Ratan in 2015. The startup offers digital onboarding solutions using AI and blockchain for banks, NBFC’s and other financial institutions.

The startup counts ICICI Bank, State Bank of India, Mahindra Finance, and Edelweiss, among its investors.

Signzy’s proprietary technology platform simplifies KYC process, runs background checks on customers, detects frauds, mitigates risks, provides contract management systems, helping the firms decrease their operational revenues.

Earlier in May 2018, Signzy raised $600,000 in a round led by Kstart, a seed funding initiative by Kalaari Capital.

In August 2018, it was reported that Signzy was among the ten startups shortlisted for Google Launchpad Accelerator programme in India.

Alok Goyal, Partner at Stellaris Venture Partners, said, “Signzy technology can provide trust solutions not just within onboarding but can be extended to trust solutions across many other transactional processes within financial services. The founders are repeat entrepreneurs and complement each other well with their skill set and have proven their capability with the strong traction in the market.”
