Indian women’s fashion start-up Fashor recently announced raising $1 million in a pre-series A funding round led by venture capital firm Sprout Venture Partners. The round also saw participation from IP Ventures, Venture Catalysts and other investors. The funds will be used to accelerate growth and expand brand presence, both in online and offline channels.

Chennai-based Fashor was founded by Vikram Kankaria and Priyanka Kankaria in 2017. The company offers trendy Indian and Indo-western clothing for women.
