New Delhi (India), July 8: Spolto, a leading player in the sports ecosystem in India, is excited to announce the successful completion of their seed funding round of $350,000 (approximately ₹2.9 crores). Although the valuation has not been disclosed, it is expected to be in the range of $5,000,000 – $7,000,000 (approximately ₹40 crore to ₹57 crore).

The investment also underscores a strong belief in the Indian sports tech market and signifies a very promising future for Spolto.
