Creation has so far invested in 12 countries and India is also one of its investment destinations. Creation has so far invested more than $250 million in India.

“The macro- environment in the last six months brought out the potential of Vivriti’s marketplace, through which they facilitated debt raise for a large number of clients as well as helped investors in their due diligence and deal executions,” Tyler Day said. Vivriti Capital’s Gaurav Kumar and Vineet Sukumar who are founders and MD of the company said that Creations’ successful closure of this round, while the world is reeling under a pandemic bears testimony to immense trust and confidence that Vivriti’s investors have in the company.
