Sell in a snap, buy with a chat

Carousell is one of the largest and fastest growing classifieds marketplaces in South East Asia. We are in seven markets across the region: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia.

Almost 150 million listings have been created on Carousell, with over 50 millions of items successfully transacted. We are focused on making it easier to buy and sell online. We began with a mobile-first approach, making selling as easy as snapping a photo, and buying as easy as chatting.

Having led the mobile-first classifieds revolution, we continue to innovate with emerging technology, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. We want to create an even more personalised, convenient and community-based experience for all our users, removing the friction in buying and selling.

Our mission is to inspire everyone in the world to start selling, and we are less than 1% done. We want to inspire the next billion people to start selling.

CleverTap, which develops cloud-based customer management and engagement tracking tools, today revealed that it recently closed a $35 million series C funding round at a valuation of $385 million — over double its previous valuation of $150 million. Tiger Global Management and Sequoia India co-led the raise, which brings the startup’s total raised to date to over $61 million following a $26 million series B in April and a $6 million round in November 2017.

CEO and cofounder Sunil Thomas said the capital infusion, which comes as CleverTap continues to grow 250% year-over-year (a rate it’s maintained since 2015), will accelerate the build-out of its U.S.-based engineering hub and the development of its products’ predictive capabilities. He added that client acquisition more than doubled in the past year alone, and that CleverTap now processes over eight billion user actions each day.
