As we continue gaining market momentum, we are pleased to welcome Prosperity7 as our new lead investor,” said Shekar Ayyar, CEO and chairman at Arrcus.

"With its extensive global reach, Prosperity7 is a great investor and partner for us in its ability to support us in our rapid growth and future investment requirements."
