FloBiz, a mobile billing app for businessmen like distributors, wholesalers, traders and retailers, is raising $10 million in its Series A round, said two sources aware of the development. This would be the maiden institutional round for the Bengaluru-based venture.
“The round will be led by Greenoaks Capital with participation from existing investors,” said one of the sources. “FloBiz is likely to announce the financing round soon”

“Besides Greenoaks, Singapore-based Beenext and US-based Pantera Capital will join the round,” said the second source on the condition of anonymity. “Post funding, FloBiz will be valued anywhere between $35-45 million,” the person added.
