Zilingo Raises $54m Series C From Sequoia, Amadeus Capital, Burda
Founded by Ankiti Bose and Dhruv Kapoor in October 2015, Zilingo was built to connect a highly fragmented landscape of fashion supply to fashion lovers across Asia.
Zilingo is a proprietary seller platform that let merchants upload & manage their inventory in any language, using any currency, connecting them through 25 APIs with logistics, warehousing and payment providers, as well as services like loans, cataloging and insurance. B2C sites and apps launched in November 2015 across ASEAN to let fashion buyers buy from thousands of these merchants who used their Zilingo Seller Platform at their offline or online store. They soon also launched their B2B business, Zilingo’s AsiaMall which allows merchants around the world to buy wholesale from Asian suppliers.
Today, Zilingo sells in Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, ships internationally to 4 more countries and has supply bases in it’s home countries of Singapore, Thailand & Indonesia, as well as China, Bangladesh, Vietnam & Cambodia, with over 10,000 independent merchants using the platform selling to millions of customers around Asia and the world.
