With the latest funding, FlexiLoans has raised a total of ₹500 crore in equity and debt funding. Founded in 2016 by graduates of Indian School of Business Abhishek Kothari, Deepak Jain, Manish Lunia, and Ritesh Jain, FlexiLoans now plans to scale up its SME lending, while also expanding its supply chain and co-lending verticals.
“FlexiLoans.com is now poised to enter the next phase of its growth journey that we have clearly crafted on the lines of Profitability, Growth and Risk Control. We chose to accept this bid over other term sheets we had from a few institutional investors, given the long term nature of this capital,” said Deepak Jain, co-founder of FlexiLoans.com in a statement.
The startup was also one of the four Indian startups to be named in the global ‘Emerging 50’ FinTechs, according to a report released by KPMG in collaboration with H2 Ventures.
