Gramophone – a full-stack agri-tech platform – on Tuesday announced that it has raised a $10 million round led by Z3Partners, an early growth investor.
Founded by IIT and IIM alumnus Tauseef, Nishant Vats Mahatre, and Harshit Gupta, Gramophone started as agronomy led, agri-input commerce company from MP. In the last two years, it has become a full-stack technology platform by adding premium farm management solutions, and Gram Vyapaar – an output marketplace.
Tauseef Khan, Co-founder and CEO, Gramophone said, “Our mission is to improve the profitability of farming ecosystem across India. We are building a new age Agriculture Company keeping farmers at the centre. We have seen a huge shift in adoption of technology solutions by the new age farmers.”
Kitty Agarwal, Partner at Info Edge Ventures, added, “We have now been partners with the Gramophone team for nearly four years and have seen tremendous growth in their evolution from being an advisory led input commerce company to a full-stack Intelligent Farming platform that does end-to-end input to output linkage for farmers and retailers.“
