E-commerce startup Udaan raises $280 Mn from Tencent, others


Indian business-to-business e-commerce startup Udaan has raised $280 Mn, as it seeks to serve more mom-and-pop businesses that are buying products online in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Udaan said existing investors including Chinese tech giant Tencent, Lightspeed Venture Partners, DST Global, GGV Capital and Altimeter Capital participated in the fundraising, along with new investors - Octahedron Capital and Moonstone Capital.


The Bengaluru-based firm, founded in 2016, is now valued at more than $3 Bn, a person familiar with the matter said. “COVID-19 has accelerated the already fast digital-led evolution of highly fragmented and unorganized Indian trade/ retail industry,” Udaan co-founder Amod Malviya said.
