22 November 2021, Mumbai:
Social commerce startup Meesho is finalising a financing round of nearly $1 billion that may take its valuation to around $8 billion, three people in know of the matter told TOI.
The latest talk of a fund-raise comes after the Bengaluru-headquartered company's valuation doubled to $4.9 billion in September, when investors led by US asset manager Fidelity and B Capital pumped in $570 million. Social commerce uses online platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram to promote and sell products & services.
In April, Meesho was valued at $2.1 billion, when it raised $300 million from SoftBank's Vision Fund. The new round may get finalised in January.
