Flipkart Raises US $700 Million in Financing Round


Bangalore, 20 December, 2014 :Flipkart, India's largest e-commerce marketplace, today announced a US $ 700 million investment with new investors: Baillie Gifford, Greenoaks Capital, Steadview Capital, T. Rowe Price Associates​ and Qatar Investment Authority, along with existing investors: DST Global, GIC, ICONIQ Capital and Tiger Global, who also participated in this latest financing round.
