Existing investors Sequoia Capital India and Verlinvest also participated in the roundtable, Wakefit said in a statement.

“The infusion comes at a strategic time as we study large-scale expansion across the country.

The C-Series cycle will help us expand our category offerings, as well as create pathways for deeper geographic penetration, ”said Ankit Garg, CEO and Co-Founder of Wakefit.co.
