The funds received will be used to grow Berrybenka.com to become a world class e-Commerce player in Indonesia, through expansion of product selection, categories, scaling marketing and expanding logistical experience for customers.

In addition to the investment, Jason Lamuda, who co-Founded Groupon Disdus, will now join the company as the President Director.

We are proud to be able to promote and nurture local brands and designers who are looking to market their products throughout Indonesia. More importantly, Berrybenka has a strong team with both fashion and e-Commerce expertise.
