Shopsense Retail Technology Private Limited, d/b/a Fynd is an Indian e-commerce company headquartered in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India and was founded in September 2012.[1]


Fynd was established on September 27, 2012 by Farooq Adam, Harsh Shah and Sreeraman MG who were all alumni of IIT Bombay.[2] Fynd (registered as Shopsense Retail Technology Pvt. Ltd.) had started off as an analytics company for customer engagement in 2012.[3] Initially set up as a B2B platform, the company connected offline stores with online platforms.[4] Fynd integrated product inventories of retail brands and apportioned them to demand channels, including major e-commerce platforms.[5][6] The company claims to operate pan-India and does not own any warehouse or logistics unit.[7]


In January 2017, Fynd raised an undisclosed amount of funding in pre-series A, from Anand Chandrasekaran, former Chief Product Officer of Snapdeal.[8] Further, the company raised $3.4 million (around Rs 21 crore) from IIFL Seed Ventures, Venture Catalyst and others in June 2017.[9]

In March 2018, Fynd raised an undisclosed amount of funding in its Series C round led by Google among other participants.[10]

In August 2019, Reliance Industries Limited acquired an 87.6% stake in Fynd for 295 crores and has an option to further invest up to ₹100 crores by December 2021.[11][12][13]
