Mumbai-based Zepo.com, a do-it-yourself (DIY) ecommerce platform for SMBs, has raised an undisclosed amount in funding led by Anupam Mittal, CEO of People Group, with One97 Mobility Fund also participating in the round. Zepo plans to use the funds raised to expand its presence in existing markets as well as to explore new overseas markets.
Anupam Mittal said, “Zepo has the potential to emerge as one of the few superstar SaaS companies from India. The market is huge and we are still at ground zero. With the funding round, we are expected to further consolidate the leadership in this category.”
