Gurugram-based fashion supply chain startup Fashinza has raised $30 million in funding from Mars Growth Capital and Liquidity Group.

The company will use the funds to support working capital requirements to expand into the US, Gulf, and Europe, it said in a statement.

Founded in 2020 by Abhishek Sharma, Pawan Gupta and Jamil Ahmad, Fashinza's business-to-business (B2B) marketplace connects small, medium and micro enterprises directly to top fashion brands across the world.

It currently has over 250 factories which serve over 200 brands across five countries, including the US, Canada, the UAE, the UK, and India.

To date, the firm has raised more than $135 million from investors including Elevation, Prosus, Westbridge Capital, and Stride Ventures. In its latest funding round in May 2022, the company raised $100 million in equity and debt from Prosus Ventures and Westbridge Capital.

Fashinza offers logistics, fintech, and payment support on its B2B platform and operates in a space which counts Singapore-based Zilingo as its global competitor. Other supply chain companies in India include XSTOK, a B2B platform for buying and selling surplus inventory, and Locofast, which connects textile suppliers to vendors.
