Zomato raises USD 60 million from Temasek and Vy Capital

This takes Zomato’s total funding to ~USD 225 million - it comes from a close set of only four investors - Info Edge, Sequoia India, Vy Capital, and now Temasek.

Zomato, the restaurant search and discovery app, has raised USD 60 million in a fresh round of funding that is being led by Singapore investment company, Temasek with participation from existing investor Vy Capital.

The company will use the investment to further grow its new business verticals. This takes Zomato’s total funding to ~USD 225 million - it comes from a close set of only four investors - Info Edge, Sequoia India, Vy Capital, and now Temasek.

“We will use this round to make investments in our new businesses such as online ordering, table reservations, point of sales, and our newly launched Whitelabel platform. With this round, and with some of our markets turning profitable recently, Zomato is well capitalised for at least two years. We are also stoked to have Temasek partner with us, and are looking forward to building one of the largest food-tech companies in the world,” shared Deepinder Goyal, Founder and CEO of Zomato.

Just last week, Zomato made strategic investments in Gurgaon-based Pickingo, and Mumbai-based Grab, both hyperlocal delivery players, to enable last-mile delivery for restaurants including dine-in-only restaurants that don't otherwise deliver.

Earlier today, Zomato also announced the launch of its Whitelabel Platform (zomato.com/whitelabel), a full suite of technologies for restaurants to run their business on the internet. The key feature on the platform is the ability for restaurants to launch custom-branded native mobile apps to help them connect with and engage their customers, and operate at internet scale.
