Kalaari Capital (formerly IndoUS Venture Partners) has invested in Gurgaon-based Power2sme, a buying club for SMEs. The fund has joined hands with the company’s existing investor, Inventus Capital Partners, in extending the Series A fundraising. The new funds will be used for scaling the company’s presence across newer geographies including Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad and Chandigarh; hiring talent and increasing the company’s brand visibility. Kalaari Capital MD Vani Kola will join the Power2sme board.
Having started operations in January 2012, Power2sme provides a platform that enables the SMEs to cut costs and build efficiencies in their business processes, thus allowing them to compete on an equal footing with large enterprises.
