One of the fastest growing D2C brands for personal hygiene, Svish has successfully raised US$400,000 as part of its Seed funding. The funding round was led by LC Nueva AIF*, an India domiciled Category II AIF Fund, where LC Nueva Investment Partners LLP^ is the Investment Manager with participation from other Angel Investors, enabled by Bright Bridge Advisors.

"Our new business development will primarily focus on launching new products as we are all set to introduce 40 new offerings in different categories including personal hygiene and body care", said Ishan Grover, CEO and Co-founder of Svish.
