Rivigo is surface logistics platform which has recently raised funds worth Rs. 84.5 crore in its Series G funding round led by existing investor Elevation Capital (formerly known as SAIF Partners). This funding was the company’s first this year in 2020.
Previously this year, in January Rivigo acquired funding from its Series C funding round worth Rs. 25 crores led by Trifecta Capital- a venture-debt company.
The logistics company is based out of Gurugram and has reportedly allotted more than 17 thousand preference shares in its Series G1 round. These shares were allotted at an issue price tag of Rs. 49,455. This information has been reported from the regulatory filings and speculation suggest, the first peak of the on-going Series G funding round is just around the corner with more money and funds to be infused in by Rivigo in the upcoming months of 2020 and 2021.
