Bengaluru-based neo-banking startup Epifi on Monday said it has raised USD 13.2 million (around Rs 93.4 crore) in a seed funding round led by Sequoia India and Ribbit Capital. The company said it will utilise the funds to build its core technology platform, drive sales as well as marketing initiatives and expand its technology team.

The seed funding round that was led by Sequoia India and Ribbit Capital also saw participation from Hillhouse Capital and angel investors, including David Velez, the founder of Nubank, and Kunal Shah, Founder and CEO, CRED, the statement said.
