B2B marketplace Zetwerk has raised $210 million in a new funding round, according to a Tuesday (Dec. 28) report by Inc42.

Zetwerk is an India-based manufacturing services platform, connecting manufacturers with vendors and suppliers for customized products and industrial machine components, among other things.

On the supply side, the company works with manufacturing businesses, and it also works on the demand side with both mid-sized and large companies in various industries. Per the report, Zetwerk also works with warehousing and supply chain solutions.

The funding round was led by Green Oaks Capital, with other participants including D1 Capital, IIFL, ICONIQ and Steadview Capital. The report mentions that Zetwerk could also raise debt funding as part of the round, which is ongoing.

As Zetwerk has attained a value of over $1 billion, it was able to attain the rank of unicorn.

The report notes that Zetwerk is a part of the burgeoning Indian B2B marketplace sector, alongside other companies like Infra.Market, Moglix and OfBusiness. In addition, BharatPe was another company that became a unicorn — one of roughly 800 around the globe.
