In June this year, Ecozen raised Rs 54 crore of additional funding as part of the first tranche of a planned Series C round. The new funding round was led by Dare Ventures, the venture capital arm of Coromandel International, with participation from existing investors—Caspian and Hivos-Triodos Fonds (managed by Triodos Investment Management)—through equity.
