Thriwe, India’s first and largest B2B “Benefits as a Platform” company, has announced its expansion into Saudi Arabia through a strategic partnership with Al Mutlaq, a prominent multi-billion-dollar conglomerate focusing on venture capital and the private equity sector.
As part of the partnership, Al Multaq has invested an undisclosed amount in Thriwe to support the latter’s regional launch and operations. The company aims to generate around $100 million of revenue from the Saudi market over the next 36 months.
The funds raised from Al Mutlaq’s will be invested to enhance a loyalty and rewards ecosystem and the customer experience in Saudi Arabia, strategize the regional operations and strengthen Thriwe’s technology solutions in line with domestic requirements.
Thriwe established in 2011 by Dhruv Verma, an XLRI alumni, is headquartered in India along with regional offices across the nation, UAE, Singapore, London, and Florida. Earlier, the company raised funds from the angel fund YourNest fund and Africa’s Ison Networks.
Thriwe’s entry into Saudi Arabia marks a significant milestone for the company as it continues to expand its footprint in the Middle East. The collaboration with Al Mutlaq Group, which has a strong presence in the region, is expected to provide Thriwe with a wealth of local knowledge and expertise and access to a vast network of potential clients and partners.
