"The capital comes at a time of rapid growth and will propel the platform into the mainstream, allowing 'Builder' to open the door for entire categories of companies that could not consider it before," he said.
Launched in June 2018, Engineer.ai has already attracted hundreds of customers across many geographies.
Its 'Builder' solution allows people -- even those without technical skills -- to get customised apps built for Android, iOS and other platforms.
Asia Pacific region mainly India, MENA, South East Asia including China are key focus areas for Engineer.ai to expand their presence into, building a stronger base for all 'Builder' offerings, the company said.
The company's headcount is currently at 150 spread across India, US and the UK. By June 2019, this is expected to go up to 300.
