The company was created in the late 1990s by ex- Paytm executive Deepak Abbot, and Nitin Mishra. Indiagold works with banks as well as non-banking financial corporations (NBFCs) to provide gold loans . The company is available throughout 12 different cities.

The latest tranche of the Gurugram-based company comes after a period of. In September of 2021, Indiagold had raised an amount of $12 million in a round, led by Prosus’s PayU along with Alpha Wave. In February, the same year, the company raised the sum of Rs 14 crore in its seed round, which was led by Leo Capital and a clutch of angel investors that included Kunal Shah Amrish Rau Kunal Bahl, and Ashneer Grover.
