New Delhi [India], June 23 (ANI): IoT-based charging station provider Kazam has raised Rs 7 crore in a seed round led by Inflection Point Ventures, one of India's largest angel investment platforms in India.
The funds will be used for product development, ramping up sales, operations and marketing with Kazam providing affordable and smart electric vehicle charging stations made in India.
The company has set up over 30 charging stations in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Delhi/NCR, Telangana and Tamil Nadu.
Vinay Bansal, Founder and CEO of Inflection Point Ventures, said many startups in electric mobility are scaling well.

Akshay Shekhar, Co-Founder of Kazam, said electric vehicles are growing at a rapid pace and the company has a solution for all EV charging needs for fleet operators, home charging and public charging.
