The investment was led by the family office Premji Invest, according to a report from Deal Street Asia. Mintifi existing backers Norwest Venture Partners, Elevation Capital and International Finance Corporation, also participated in the Series D.
According to the Economic Times India, 90% of the Series D was raised through selling new shares. The remaining 10% was raised through secondary shares. The report also claims Mintifi is profitable and is forecasting between $8m and $10m profit after tax for fiscal year 2023.
