MoEngage also stated that it will use the additional funds to deepen its geographic footprint in the US, Europe, Asia, and Middle-East markets and will also expand in new markets like Latin America and Australia.

“We are the leading customer engagement platform in India. We have 500+ customers in the country, including Sharechat, Flipkart, Byju’s, Ola, Domino’s, IIFL, Airtel, Ujjivan Bank, Navi, and more.
