AlgoBulls Technologies Pvt. Ltd, an algorithmic trading platform focussed on stock markets, on Tuesday said it has secured pre-Series A funding of $2 million (around Rs 18 crore) led by existing investor Venture Catalysts. 

The round also saw participation from financial services firm DSP Group, LetsVenture, Hemant Sood and Nitin Shahi (Findoc Finvest) as well as Sharath Kumar (former Tower Research Capital’s India executive), among other funds and family offices. 

The Mumbai-based startup will use the fresh capital to scale up its products and technology, rope in more talents and expand global footprint.

AlgoBulls, established by Pushpak Dagade, Suraj Bathija and Jimmit Patel in 2019, is a platform which utilises algorithms to provide fully automated, customized and professional stock-trading experiences. 

The company says it operates on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) basis, and provides features including back-testing, paper (virtual) trading and real trading in its business-to-customer (B2C) segment.  

In 2020, it had raised an undisclosed sum in a round led by Venture Catalysts.
