Gold loan provider startup Rupeek raised $16 million in fresh round from Accel India, Sequoia Capital where investors like Bertelsmann and ZNL Growth Fund also participated.

The news comes nearly three months after Rupeek laid off around 200 employees as part of a cost-cutting measure. A company spokesperson said the layoffs were caused by a “subdued macroeconomic environment.” According to Inc42, India’s fintech market is expected to reach $1.3 trillion by 2025. The sector is already the second most funded in the startup ecosystem, having raised $24 billion in funding between 2014 and H1 of 2022.
