The company said that it plans to utilise the fund for product development, increasing workforce and global expansion.

We are excited with the promise the coming years hold for this market and are delighted to be partnering with the smartest capital in the industry along this journey, Shiprocket Chief Executive Office and co-founder Saahil Goel said.

Launched in 2017, Shiprocket turned profitable in financial year 2018-19 and has an annualised revenue run rate between Rs 360-435 crore.

Shiprocket previously raised about Rs 190 crore (USD 26 million) in funding from Bertelsmann India Investments, Nirvana Venture Partners, Beenext, and 500 Startups.

"Through this round, existing funds advised by Recruit Strategic Partners, Nirvana Venture Advisors and 500 Startups were able to exit with returns between 6 to 40 times," the statement said.
