Existing investors also participated in the fresh round.
Moglix, which is also backed by Tata Sons’ Chairman Emeritus Ratan Tata since its inception, said that it will use the funds to support the strong demand for Moglix’s robust technology solution in supply chain and manufacturing domain, infrastructure growth and geographical expansion plans.
Rahul Garg, Founder & CEO, Moglix said, “We are delighted to welcome on board the team at IFC as well as Rocketship and appreciate the continued trust of our existing investors Accel Partners, Jungle Ventures, Shailesh Rao and Venture Highway. The funding will accelerate our infrastructure build-up to better serve our customers, and enhance our product offerings as the manufacturing and supply chain industry heralds towards digitisation.''
