印尼最大电商Tokopedia获10亿美元融资

据悉,印度尼西亚在线市场Tokopedia获得了现有投资者10亿美元的投资,其中包括软银等知名公司。消息人士称,本轮融资创造了新的记录,该公司的估值升至约70亿美元。

目前还不清楚资金是来自软银集团公司还是愿景基金,这家来自东京的公司是Tokopedia最新的支持者。

Tokopedia的成功取决于智能手机和网上购物在印度尼西亚的大规模普及。

Tokopedia于2009年由William Tanuwijaya共同创办,也是阿里巴巴旗下的Lazada和Bukalapak的顶级竞争对手,后者在最近获得了新加坡Sea Ltd的投资。

到目前为止,软银和Tokopedia仍然拒绝对此消息发表评论。

根据市场研究结构iPrice Group的数据,Tokopedia在今年第三季度排名第一,紧随其后的是Bukalapak、Shopee和Lazada。

联合创始人Tanuwijaya表示,2014年他与软银亿万富翁创始人孙正义的第一次会面,对该公司来说是一个转折点,因为那时Tanuwijaya未能为他的想法筹集到资金。

“孙正义会问我对未来的看法。他并不在乎我的过去,”Tanuwijaya说。

Tokopedia提供了一个便利平台,客户可以从现有商家而不是实体店那里购买商品。它提供电子产品、服装和医疗保健用品交易,还提供火车票购买服务,为客户提供手机充值的便利,现在还与Ovo合作推出了自己的电子钱包交易。

Indonesia’s online marketplace Tokopedia set a new record after reportedly raising US$1 billion worth of investment from its current investors, which include major names like SoftBank. Bloomberg first reported that now the company is valued at about US$7 billion after the round, according to a private source.

It isn’t clear yet if the funding comes from SoftBank Group Corp. or its Vision Fund, the Tokyo-based company which is the newest Tokopedia’s backer.

Tokopedia found success by capitalizing on the smartphone vast adoption Indonesia has experienced and the online shopping reliability.

Co-founded by William Tanuwijaya in 2009, Tokopedia put itself on the map as top competitors of Alibaba Group’s Lazada and Bukalapak with the latter recently being funded by Singapore’s Sea Ltd.

Until now, Softbank and Tokopedia still declined to comment on the news.

Tokopedia has been sitting on number 1 in the third quarter this year, followed by Bukalapak, Shopee, and Lazada, according to market researcher iPrice Group’s data.

The sentimental connection between Tokopedia’s Tanuwijaya made the news when the co-founder shared about his first meeting with SoftBank’s billionaire founder Masayoshi Son as a turning point for the company in 2014 just right after Tanuwijaya failed 11 pitches to get funding for his idea.

“Masayoshi Son was there, asking me what I thought of the future. He didn’t care about my past,” said Tanuwijaya.
