Mumbai based real estate intelligence provider Propstack Services Pvt Ltd has received funding in a latest round from high profile private equity and hedge fund professionals.

Last year, Propstack along with MIT created India’s maiden office realty rent indices for top six cities.

Propstack had earlier raised a funding of $3 million in a Series A round in June, 2015, and til then it has built a Commercial Real Estate (CRE) tech and data platform across 8 cities. It had also launched a largest developer loan database, which is now used by industry players to build their loan book.
