Second straight rise in Swiggy’s valuation

Also, this is for the second consecutive time that Invesco has raised its figure regarding Swiggy’s worth. In July last year, the former found the food delivery platform to be worth $7.85 billion; the latest figure, therefore, marks a rise of nearly 6% from the previous one. Additionally, though the July 2023 valuation came after two back-to-back cuts, it represented a 43% increase from the previous worth.

The cuts

Last April, Invesco reduced its valuation of Swiggy to $8.8 billion, down from $10.7 billion, as tech stocks around the world took a beating. Shortly after that, the valuation dropped further to $5.5 billion, before being raised in July.

Still below peak valuation

The current figure, however, is still less than Invesco’s $10.7 billion valuation of Swiggy in January 2022, which came after the latter made $700 million in a round led by the AMC.
