Noida-based supplytech startup, Prozo has raised INR 76 Cr in its Series A funding round led by Sixth Sense Ventures. Jafco Asia and HNIs also participated in the round.
Dexter Capital Advisor was the exclusive financial advisor to the startup in its funding round.
The startup will deploy funds to expand its warehousing and fulfillment footprint, client base, technology and analytics capability. Prozo works as an ecommerce enabler and accelerator for SMEs, D2C brands and enterprises, offering nationwide multi-channel warehousing, freight, supply chain technology and ecommerce distribution services to its clients.
“Prozo is revolutionizing the ecommerce supply chain for brands and enterprises via its full stack, end-to-end, multi-channel fulfillment solutions. Deeper penetration of ecommerce and proliferation of brands has led to strong tailwinds for the business that has been growing close to 40% month-on-month. We are elated to join hands with Sixth Sense and leverage their expertise and network in the consumer universe,” said Dr Ashvini Jakhar, founder and CEO of Prozo.
Founded by Dr Ashvini Jakhar, it claims to offer end-to-end supply chain solutions and ‘Prime like’ (same day, next day delivery) fulfillment to SMEs, D2C brands and enterprises on a pay-per-use model. The startup said it has been on a hyper growth trajectory and serves clients in more than 10 categories.

Hundreds of enterprises, thousands of D2C brands and over a million SMEs will compete to serve this humongous customer base. We are excited about the pivotal role Prozo will play as a tech-driven integrated supply chain partner to these companies,” said Nikhil Vora, founder, Sixth Sense Ventures.
