The five-year-old firm last raked in over Rs 190 crore in its Series B round. Held in the early months of 2022, the round was led by Steadview Capital.

While Nexus Ventures held over 25% of the firm’s shares post infusion, founders held equal shares of about 18% each.

Its losses for FY23 spiked over four fold to Rs 82.6 crore as compared to FY22’s Rs 19 crore. Its currently EBITDA and ROCE are at -335.14% and -63.92% respectively.
