KisanKonnect Raises Rs 31 Crore in Pre-Series A Funding Led by Green Frontier Capital for Agritech Expansion

Agritech startup KisanKonnect has successfully raised Rs 31 crore (approximately $3.75 million) in a pre-series A funding round, with Green Frontier Capital (GFC), a climate tech-focused fund, leading the investment. Other participants in the round include Dhanuka Agritech Limited, a key crop protection company in India, VC Grid, and several family offices.


KisanKonnect, founded in 2020 and headquartered in Ahmednagar, plans to utilize the funds to expand its climate-smart agriculture initiatives with its network of 5,000 farmers.


Additionally, the startup aims to strengthen its fresh-produce supply chain technology and introduce new farm stores to complement its existing locations in Mumbai and Pune.



KisanKonnect operates by directly sourcing produce from farmers and delivering it to over 1 lakh customers through its own direct-to-consumer (D2C) app and farm stores. The startup focuses on fostering sustainable agricultural practices by working closely with the farming community.


Leveraging its in-house technology, KisanKonnect ensures efficient delivery of fresh vegetables and fruits. Moreover, the company produces and sells curated agri-produce and hand-made snacks under the 'Village Staples' and 'Mom's Kitchen' categories. These products are exclusively crafted by rural women in a hygienic central kitchen.


This funding round follows an earlier angel round in May 2023, where Kisankonnect secured undisclosed funding from celebrity investor Shilpa Shetty. With the latest investment, the startup aims to expand its reach and impact within the agritech sector, contributing to sustainable and technology-driven agriculture practices in India.
