Fashion E-commerce startup and Beauty product marketplace Bagallery has successfully raised $4.5M in its latest funding round. The Series A round was co-lead by Zayn Capital, existing investor Lakson VC and UAE- based Hayaat Global.
Co-founded by husband and wife Mina & Salman back in 2017, Bagallery is on a mission to reinvent how people shop for beauty and fashion products online. With its wide range of products spanning across the categories of skincare, makeup, fragrance, handbags, watches, and clothing, Bagallery serves more than 2,700,000 users per month and has 500,000+ satisfied customers across the country.
Throughout the year, and as most recently recorded in our November Venture Investment Dashboard, industries of digitization like FinTech, E-commerce, and Transport & Logistics have raised the lion's share of unprecedented funding in Pakistan. Observing a 325% YoY uptick in capital deployed in the E-commerce ecosystem, despite a 12% YoY drop in total number of transactions by November 2021, the Pakistani E-commerce ecosystem is set to speed up the nation-wide digital adoption. Amongst the most anticipated investment in Pakistan-based E-commerce startups in 2021 this year were funding rounds closed by E-commerce marketplaces like Bazaar, Tajir, Grocer App, and Tazah Technologies.
