Mynavi acquires majority stake in HRtech startup Awign


Awign, a work-as-a-service platform, has announced a strategic majority stake acquisition in an all cash deal from Mynavi Corporation.

This partnership will also signify the departure of few of Awign’s early backers, including Capria, Lumis, MSDF, Amicus Capital and Pankaj Bansal.

Earlier in 2022, the Bengaluru-based company had announced its first employee stock option (ESOP) buyback programme worth Rs 4 crore on the heels of its $15 million Series B round co-led by Bertelsmann India Investments and Amicus Capital Partners.

This partnership and the capital will further enable Awign to focus on long term strategic growth and deeper value creation without getting affected by the fundraising market environment, the firm said in a press release.

Founded by Annanya Sarthak, Gurpreet Singh, and Praveen Kumar Sah in 2016, Awign helps enterprises run their businesses at scale by solving end-to-end outcome-based execution along with discovery, deployment, and payroll management.

This partnership will further fuel Awign’s ambitions in onboarding and serving more global enterprise customers.

As per the startup intelligence platform TheKredible, the funding in the HR tech space has shrunk over 70% to $90 million in 2023 from $315 million in 2021. In 2022, the space received a funding infusion of $341 million. Visit here for more details.
