Meanwhile, Flipkart's investment arm, Flipkart Ventures, is set to invest in five early-stage start-ups as part of its accelerator program, Flipkart Leap Ahead (FLA). These selected start-ups, including Algomage, Castler, FlexifyMe, NimbleBox.ai, and ReCircle, have been chosen for their potential to innovate technology across various sectors, including deep tech, fintech, health tech, gen-AI, and sustainability.
