Garuda Aerospace, the Chennai-based drone company backed by former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has raised ₹25 crore in a fresh bridge round of funding led by Venture Catalysts and WeFounderCircle.

The funding round witnessed commitments from other notable investors, including Hems Angels, San Angels, Peaceful Progress Funds, and several prominent angel investors, which collectively capped out the funding round, according to a release.

The funds will be utilised to address the sudden demand for drone solutions. The company will allocate the funds towards working capital requirements, ensuring execution of the IFFCO drone order, and fulfilling the pre-booked orders from numerous dealers across the country.

Recently, Garuda Aerospace had a strategic partnership with Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Limited for a drone order of 400 units and a pre-booking of 10,000 drones from 700 dealers across the country. This led to a sudden surge in demand for the company’s drone solutions, the release said.
