Nearex, a Singapore-based mobile micropayment start-up, has received second round of funding from a clutch of existing investors led by Tata Capital Growth Fund LP.

Nearex’s existing investors, BEENOS Asia, a Japanese company with extensive payment industry investments around emerging markets and Xinvesco also participated in the funding, it said in a statement.

Nearex is a privately held company with investment from individuals and industry and was founded by mobile technology industry veterans Mayank Sharma and Arun Tanksali in 2012 to overcome the challenge of cashless micropayments.
