Founded by Amit Chawla and Shreeram Ramanathan, Fundly.ai is a fintech platform embedded in the healthcare vertical to provide innovative financing and allied solutions to the pharma distribution tail, specialty players, and brands.
The startup specialises in providing customised solutions to retailers and distributors in the pharma supply chain and helps them minimise friction, better manage cash flow, and increase margins.
Speaking about the development, Amit Chawla, Founder of Fundly.ai, said,
“With this new funding, we are excited to expand our reach and explore untapped markets, bringing our vision of a more efficient and effective pharma supply chain to an even larger demographic.”
Fundly’s full-stack tech solves supply chain network inefficiencies and skewed working capital cycles by providing accessible, convenient and customised solutions.
The firm claims to have disbursed money totalling Rs 140 crore (USD 17.1 million) and has empowered 2000+ retailers and 30+ distributors across nine cities. It gets roughly 55 per cent of its business from Tamil Nadu, 30 per cent to 35 per cent from Maharashtra and the rest from Andhra Pradesh.
Fundly.ai, which is now active in southern and western Indian markets, intends to focus on growth in its existing regions. Currently, the startup operates in nine Indian locations.
