Zopper plans to deploy the fresh proceeds to scale its engineering and data teams, improving the software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform and data analytics capabilities. 

The company is also planning to grow inorganically through mergers and acquisitions, said Surjendu Kuila, co-founder and chief executive at Zopper told VCCircle

“We’re contemplating acquisitions that will focus on new segments that we plan to foray in. Currently, we are aiming to expand into three-four segments. However, it will take at least a quarter to finalise.”

Zopper achieved cash flow profitability one-and-a-half years ago. “We were profitable in FY22. The company plans to maintain its profitability with its expansion plans in place,” said co-founder Mayank Gupta. 

The company’s revenue stood at Rs 70 crore in the financial year 2021-22 and aims to reach Rs 200 crore in revenue by the end of this fiscal.

"Our gross written premiums stood at ₹350 crore in FY22. We are targeting a $200 million premium run rate as of March 2023," said Gupta.
