Jan. 7, 2022Bambrew, India’s largest one-stop innovative solution provider of sustainable packaging as an alternate to single use plastic, has raised pre-Series-A funding of $2.35 Million led by Blue Ashva Capital and Supack Industries. The round also saw participation from Mumbai Angels and notable angel investors.

Bambrew finished second place in the Entrepreneurship World Cup National Finals in India in 2019 and its founder Vaibhav Anant is a member of the GEN Starters Club, a talented community of founders who have been battle tested by Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN) programs.

According to a press release, the latest infusion of funds will be utilized to build India’s first tech enabled platform for sourcing green packaging, increase the supply capacity, expand in multiple cities, invest in R&D of new sustainable materials and further strengthen the team.

Commenting on the funding, Vaibhav, said “People and businesses are having increased awareness of the perils of single use plastic (SUP) usage. We are elated to see the changing consumer behaviours to consider alternatives. This strengthens our vision and belief to reduce the usage of SUP and help make our planet a better place for the current and future generations."

"We have been able to scale our operations manifold over these past few years and take great pride in our collaboration with the largest e-commerce player in the world as well as other major players in this space. Over past 2 years, we have seen 50x growth and envision further higher growth scale in the upcoming year. This latest infusion of funds will help us increase our footprint and supply capacity across metros like Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata, as well as global markets including the US, Europe, and the Middle East.”
