TradeGecko Raises USD 6.5M Series A to Fuel Product Expansion
Led by NSI Ventures and Jungle Ventures, the round will support TradeGecko's aggressive global expansion. In FY2015, TradeGecko experienced over 1,100 percent year-over-year growth, fueling its development as a SaaS leader with customers in over 100 countries and nearly USD 1B in transactions.
“We’re delighted to partner with a group of experienced and passionate investors who share our vision at TradeGecko of making wholesale buying as effortless as shopping on Amazon,” said TradeGecko CEO & co-founder Cameron Priest.
"We feel TradeGecko’s product is a best-in-class supply chain solution for global SMEs,” added Shane Chesson, Partner at NSI Ventures. “We are pleased to invest in the company to help it manage its rapid network growth and deepen its product through new features and new partnerships.”
Having more control over how we are building our company means that we can get even better at helping you to build yours.
“In the last few years, TradeGecko has created wonderfully designed products that have a highly engaged and fast growing customer base across the world,” said Amit Anand, Managing Partner at Jungle Ventures. “TradeGecko has a bright future as the leading provider of cloud-based, mobile software for retailers and wholesalers in the ever growing and complex world of global eCommerce. We are excited to partner with this dynamic team.”
From our humble beginnings, when three young entrepreneurs from New Zealand set off for Singapore’s budding startup scene with nothing but a bag of clothes and a laptop, to securing significant early stage funding and a quick market uptake of our initial TradeGecko solution. Our customers now come from 100 countries and together have made transactions close to USD 1B. And all in under three years!
We're so proud of what we've built so far. Securing this funding means we can keep working on making the TradeGecko platform you know and love even better. We have many, many new features and improvements in the pipeline to further optimize the way you run your business.
During our journey, we’ve had the support of great investors that truly believe in us. We have raised over USD 8M from world-class investors, including NSI Ventures, The National Research Foundation of Singapore, Golden Gate Ventures, Jungle Ventures, Wave Maker Labs and 500 Startups
