The firm also added it will leverage Benow's network of partners to deepen its presence across the country.  Besides, Benow’s current Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Soorraj VS, will also continue to lead the platform. 

"Their product syncs well into Mosambee's vision of providing solutions to the small retailers to help them compete with their larger and online counterparts. We appreciate the drive and passion at Benow and have created an environment for them to work as a startup within a startup.  

Our first focus was to make Benow profitable and we have been able to achieve this over the last four months. Over to Soorraj to make them market leaders in this segment," said Sameer Chugh, Co-Founder and Director at Mosambee. 

"We're thrilled to become a part of Mosambee's platform. Benow has always aimed at empowering MSMEs with an innovative digital solution. I firmly believe that this acquisition will help us enable more merchants with the right tools to grow their business," said Soorraj VS, Managing director and CEO at Benow.
