With India's gaming sector growing, skill-based mobile gaming platform Zupee is looking to scale up, expand its market reach, and enhance user penetration for its platform. On Monday, the Gurugram startup Zupee raised additional capital of $10 million led by WestCap Group (WestCap), a leading US growth equity firm.

Existing investor Matrix Partners India also participated in the round. According to the official statement, the startup has so far raised $19 million in funding, including this round. This is the second round of funding successfully secured by Zupee within the last 12 months - with $8 million raised in April 2020.
