15th March 2021, Pune - Indic Inspirations (www.indicinspirations.com) – a Cultural Startup, based out of Pune, announced the completion of an Angel Funding round of ₹2.5 Cr with marquee investors, from California-USA, Singapore and India.

Commenting on the development, Sunil Jalihal, Founder-CEO, Indic Inspirations, "India with its rich culture, heritage, traditions and its achievements, it is sad that we don't have products and souvenirs that represent them. On the contrary, other countries are monetizing our ideas and concepts like Yoga and Haldi. We aim to tap a ₹10,000 crores Indian souvenir market with our collection of products. And with the ongoing buzz around 'Make in India' and 'Indian Pride' along with consumers and corporates looking for alternatives to Chinese Products, the opportunities are endless to revive our Arts & Crafts and artisanal earnings."

The brand through its partnerships – with rich content owners such as ISRO, ASI, BORI and bulk consumer end points including Institutions and Corporates, plans to deliver many valuable products.
