Chennai-based financial services firm Vivriti Capital has raised ₹350 crore ($50 million) in Series B funding from LGT Lightstone Aspada, increasing the total equity raised by the company to $100 million.

This investment from Lightstone will be used to significantly ramp up technology and analytical engine powering the online marketplace and shore up the balance sheet lending of the company, thereby serving many more clients on the company’s platform in the coming year, said Vivriti Capital co-founders Gaurav Kumar and Vineet Sukumar in a joint statement.

Founded by Gaurav Kumar and Vineet Sukumar in 2017, Vivriti owns a proprietary enterprise debt deal and value discovery online platform, CredAvenue. Since inception, CredAvenue has facilitated deal flows of more than ₹25,000 crore. Major banks, NBFCs, SFBs, mutual fund houses, DFIs and family offices are the key participants on the platform.

The platform has more than 250 issuers and 120 investors. Vivriti Capital also has an Alternative Investment Fund (AIF).
