Berrybenka.com, one of the leading fashion e-Commerce in Indonesia has raised Series A investment from GREE Ventures Inc. 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. Jason states: “I truly believe that fashion is one of the biggest market opportunities in the Indonesian e-Commerce landscape. When you look at more developed regions such as Europe, China, Japan and India, there always existed leading local fashion e-Commerce players.

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.
