PrimeOS raises $1 Mn in seed round fund

PrimeOS, an android-based operating system for laptops, has raised $1 million in its seed round led by Kundan Group, Brindavan Group, and Infotel Business Solution. It has also offered exits to its early backers, Venture Catalysts and a few angel investors in just four years. The Delhi-based startup has also given exits to its investors at a 3X valuation in its latest funding round.

The exit assumes paramount importance when funding winter seems to have adversely impacted the growth of several startups, and layoffs have become a strategy to protect margins. Founded in 2017 by IIT Delhi alumni Chitranshu Mahant, Aman Verma PrimeOS has over three million organic downloads from 140 countries and has been awarded the best “Android OS for PC” by tech media houses”.

Chitranshu Mahant, Founder & CEO of PrimeSO, said, “If a business solves a problem, gives a good customer experience and makes a profit, then everything else is noise in terms of funding winters. We are a profitable company and we believe it is a startup’s responsibility not only to solve its users’ problems but also to create value for investors. We are glad that despite a challenging environment, we have provided 3x returns to our early investors. The company has raised around Rs 10 crore since its inception and got its first round from Venture Catalysts in 2018.
