“With this fundraise, the company will strengthen its technology and product offerings. GramCover will also enhance the availability of various insurance products and services on the ‘GramCover Partner’ application and also expand its point of sale network, tech, sales & operation teams across multiple geographies,” the statement said.

Speaking on the investment in GramCover, Dinesh Goel, Partner, Siana Capital said: “The GramCover team has understood the key nuances of scaling up the non-urban segment of insurance distribution which is a gigantic opportunity in India.”

“With a solid end-to-end deep technology platform in conjunction with a human-assisted local agency network, we feel GramCover is well-positioned to continue its high growth trajectory. Further, the business model helps achieve the twin objectives of profitable growth and providing livelihood risk protection to a largely rural population of India,” Goel added.

Commenting on the funding, Pratip Mazumdar, Partner of Inflexor Ventures said, “Our investment in GramCover stems from Inflexor’s conviction in backing technology-led enterprises working towards deepening the insurance penetration, to create a meaningful impact in a large, under-insured market.”
