Founded in 2016, Gurugram-based Gramophone offers a full stack agritech platform for farmers. The company sells agricultural inputs to farmers directly and via small retailers through an omnichannel model.

For the 2021-22 financial year, the startup registered a turnover of Rs 181.1 crore.


In 2018, Gramophone had raised a pre-Series A funding of $1 million from InfoEdge. In 2019, InfoEdge invested Rs 14 crore in the startup via compulsorily convertible preference shares. In 2021, the startup raised $10 million in a funding round led by Z3Partners, an early growth investor.
