Hospitality MSMEs, others urge govt for interest waiver, moratorium extension, employee salaries, more

The government had announced ECLGS 3.0 in April this year to cover enterprises in the hospitality, travel & tourism, leisure & sporting sectors.

Whatfix said that the firm’s revenue and headcount tripled in the past two years. The US-headquartered company that runs an office in Bengaluru currently has 500 employees across six global offices.

The company has 500 global customers comprising more than 100 Fortune 1000 brands, including The Netherlands Red Cross, Experian, Sentry Financial Services, Cardinal Health Canada, BMC Software, Bausch & Lomb among others.

Whatfix, a digital adoption solutions platform, on Tuesday announced that it has raised $90 million in Series D funding led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2. Eight Roads Ventures, Sequoia Capital India, Dragoneer Investment Group, F-Prime Capital and Cisco Investments also participated in the round.

Whatfix’s total fund count now stands at $139.8 million. The company claims that its valuation has increased by as much as three times in the past 15 months. The latest investment values the company at about $600 million, significantly higher than $150 million it was valued at during its previous funding round closed about a year ago, CEO & co-founder Khadim Batti said in an interview to local media.
