This week, we have SpruceShine in the house!

Do you know the laundry market in India is valued at $35.83 B in FY2020 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.96% through FY2026? Currently, 95% of the market is dominated by unorganized players with a major whitespace up for grabs.

The platform further provides them with the right tools to set up their garment care business without the need to set up a back-end supply chain.
