Almo, a D2C brand in the men’s premium essential wear space, has closed its pre-Series A funding of $2mn led by Inflection Point Ventures along with LetsVenture, AngelList India, and other angels from the industry. Almo intends to bolster its branding and marketing efforts along with setting up its state-of-the-art R&D lab to continue innovating on sustainable product lines.

Abhishek Shah, Co-Founder and CEO said, “Almo’s vision is to be the one-stop essentials’ destination for the evolved man, led by product innovation and customer obsession. With this funds infusion, we plan to continue strengthening our team and brand to scale across various online marketplaces, though D2C continues to be our primary channel which has been an edge against the traditional incumbents. We also plan to explore international markets this year via Amazon's Global Selling Propel Accelerator program access!”

Launched in June 2020 by Abhishek Shah, Muskaan Jain and Chhavi Bhardwaj, Almo is bringing the Italian seamless designs and sophistication to the Indian men's closet at the right price point.
