Our Story

Meesho was started by Vidit Aatrey and Sanjeev Barnwal with the idea to enable mom & pop stores to sell online in 2016. They soon realised that their primary users were actually sellers who did not own a shop, but sold through their social network. They realised that this is how small businesses will work in the future and built a product to democratise social commerce and enable literally anyone to start their own venture. They quickly pivoted to enabling social sellers/entrepreneurs monetise their network by providing supply, logistics and payments infrastructure.

From its humble beginnings six year ago, Meesho has successfully enabled over 15M+ individual entrepreneurs to start their own online businesses with zero investment, bringing e-commerce to more than 45M+ customers across India. Till date the company has delivered orders from 100K+ registered suppliers to over 26,000 pin codes in more than 4,800 cities, generating over 500 crore in income for individual entrepreneurs and serving customers in more than 4,500 Tier 2+ cities — truly bringing e-commerce to Bharat.

Meesho is Series E funded and has raised $300 Million in a fresh round of investment led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2, the world’s largest technology-focused venture capital fund. The funding round also saw participation from existing investors such as Prosus Ventures, Facebook, Shunwei Capital, Venture Highway and Knollwood Investment.The latest round of investment means that Meesho’s valuation is now at USD 2.1 billion — taking it to unicorn status.

Meesho is headquartered in Bengaluru, India and was one of the three Indian companies to be selected for Y Combinator in 2016. It was also a part of the first batch of Google Launchpad – Solve for India programme.
