MoneyOnClick, a tech-based lending startup, Thursday said it has raised Rs 15 crore (USD 2.15 million) as part of its seed capital fund from investors like Orios Venture Partners, Kalaari Capital, and 3one4 Capital.
Bengaluru-based MoneyOnClick is focussed on providing a lending platform to consumers who fall outside the margins of the formal banking system due to their lack of a credit history or low credit ratings.
"These funds would enable us to hire a great team and build technology capabilities that will form a solid foundation for our company," Vishal Chopra, co-Founder of MoneyOnClick, said.
Himanshu Gupta, co-founder at MoneyOnClick, said these funds will help the company to build the infrastructure for advanced machine learning-based credit underwriting as well as the technology stack to scale the product.
