[Funding alert] Servify raises $23M in Series C led by Iron Pillar
Servify, a Mumbai-based device lifecycle management platform, on Wednesday announced that it has raised $23 million in its Series C funding, led by existing investor Iron Pillar, an India-focused venture growth investor, from its recently concluded Top-Up Fund.
In addition to its other existing investors like Blume Ventures, BEENEXT, and Tetrao SPF, the current round also saw participation from funds managed by Global Alternatives Investor 57 Stars, multiple strategic investors like Sparkle Fund (an investment arm of DMI Finance), SF Roofdeck Capital LLC (investment arm of Silicon Valley Investment Bank FT Partners), Go Ventures (the investment arm of Go PLC, a Maltese integrated telecommunications company), and Madhu Kela Family Office .
Servify’s existing venture debt provider Trifecta Capital also participated in the round.“It is very satisfying as we have more than quadrupled our revenue in 2020 to date, and raised funds for expansion even during the tough economic climate. This further strengthens our belief that we have built a globally scalable sound business, that is not only trusted by large brands but also the investor community,” said Sreevathsa Prabhakar, Founder, Servify.
