Agrowave, an agritech startup, has raised $2 million in Pre-Series A from Aroa Ventures, the family office of Oyo founder Ritesh Agarwal. The firm is building a supply-driven farm-to-market mobility supply chain with focus on first-mile logistics and trades supply through an integrated network of mobile pickup stations. The company plans to use the funds to expand the team and scale operations to achieve a monthly GMV (gross merchandise value) of over Rs 100 crore.

Founded in 2017, Gurugram-based Agrowave is a first-of-a-kind agritech startup striving to build 40,000 mobile pickup stations (MPS) at farm gates to procure directly from farmers.
