Zetwerk had closed its Series D round in February this year, raising $120 Mn from Greenoaks and Lightspeed Venture Partners. Sequoia Capital India and Kae Capital had also participated in the round, which had taken the startup’s valuation reach $600 Mn. According to sources within the company, Zetwerk has entered the unicorn club with this funding round.

In June this year, Zetwerk raised $30 Mn in debt funding from Mars Growth Capital, a division of the fintech company Liquidity and MUFG Fund  to support growth in regions like Southeast Asia and marketing in the US and aggressively expand in newer areas like defense and aerospace. The startup received its Series C round of funding worth $21 Mn led by Greenoaks Capital in July last year. And prior to this, it had closed its Series B round at $21 Mn.
