Commenting on the capital raised, Shashank Kumar, Co-founder at Razorpay, one of the investors and also a client said, “xto10x is the only institution that provides systematic support to founders looking to scale up from Series A/B to the unicorn and beyond. We have found the xto10x offerings extremely relevant in our own journey of building a high-growth and durable organisation at Razorpay.”
“Our experience over the past two years has shown us that founders are really looking for support to grow fast and build enduring companies. Doing deep operating work with startups and converting that experience into software tools and learning curriculum has helped us build strong momentum, driving 4X growth in the past year. In fact, xto10x is already a profitable company,” added Saikiran Krishnamurthy, Co-founder, xto10x Technologies.
