Nexxio was founded in 2020 by Dhiraj Bhandari. The company claims that its platform processes over 2 crore b2b transactions per year. It counts several small and medium Indian brands in its clientele including, TTK Prestige, Nilkamal Plastics, EagleCoats, KaveriPlasto, Sturlite, Elica Whirlpool, Servokon, Neoseal Adhesives, Sonet Sanitaryware, etc.

“While traditionally Indian companies have been reluctant to pay for software, there has been a definite shift post-Covid. Business owners have realized the need for platforms that improve business productivity via real-time data and insights - Dependence on manual processes represents a real risk for businesses,” Malpani Ventures said in a statement.
