Existing backer Indian Angel Network has also invested in this round along with iAngels Network of India Accelerator, Faad Network, and Hem Angels. 

Founded by IIT Roorkee graduates Pramudit Somvanshi, Mohit Patel along with IHM Mumbai alumnus Aakash Gupta in May 2018, Ingenium provides a SaaS (software as a service) platform to small and medium education institutes. Home tutors and parents can also avail their service. 


Fabheads, a startup focused on automated manufacturing in the carbon fibre (and other composites) space, has raised Rs 8 crore in its pre-Series A round of funding led by Inflection Point Ventures.
