Content marketplace Pepper Content on June 9 announced that it has raised $14.3 million in its Series A funding round led by Bessemer Venture Partners, as the startup looks to bolster its presence in the United States and foray into new categories.

The financing round also saw participation from new investor Tanglin Venture Partners and existing investors Lightspeed and Titan Capital as well as individuals such as DoorDash's Gokul Rajaram, Oyo's Ritesh Agarwal and Abhinav Sinha, Teachable founder Ankur Nagpal, Nutanix and DevRev co-founder Dheeraj Pandey, Cred founder Kunal Shah, and Helion Ventures co-founder Ashish Gupta.

Started in 2017 by Anirudh Singla and Rishabh Shekhar, Pepper Content helps companies create content through its talent marketplace network of freelance content creators including writers, graphic designers, language translators, videographers, editors, and illustrators, enabling them to scale their content marketing efforts.

Singla told Moneycontrol that they work with the top 5-7% of the creative talent who have different subject matter expertise and experiences and undergo stringent vetting processes including a range of tests to judge language proficiency and industry proficiency.
