Full-stack horticulture startup Fasal has raised Rs 100 crore in a Series A funding round led by TDK Ventures and British International Investment (BII) and contributions from ITI Growth Opportunities Fund, Navam Capital and Aureolis Ventures.

The round also saw participation from all its existing investors including 3one4 Capital, Omnivore, Wavemaker Partners, Genting Ventures, and The Yield Labs Asia Pacific.

"With this capital infusion, we plan to expand Fasal’s presence from 75,000 acres to 500,000 acres and enable our technology to deliver more to our farmers by providing them access to sustainable crop inputs, farm-level crop insurance, and working capital at lower interest rates," Shailendra Tiwari, Founder and CEO of Fasal, said.

"We will provide our buyers with sustainably grown, high quality, and traceable horticulture produce by further diversifying and strengthening our B2B brand ‘Fasal Fresh’," Tiwari added.
