Explorex, a restaurant-focused full stack SaaS startup, co-founded by Kgpians Mainak Sarkar and Pritam Khan has received $ 5 million as seed funding for their growth roadmap.  The Y Combinator-backed startup, founded in 2020, will deploy the funding to expand its presence in Mumbai and New Delhi and product development.

The funding came from Super Angel’s Taher Savliwala, Twitch cofounder Kevin Lin, Fitbit CEO James Park, Oura’s Harpreet Rai, and Relationship hero cofounder Liron Shapira. The startup had raised $1.5 million six months back in pre-seed funding from a clutch of investors.
