Product/Service Summary

Buyoco is a B2B Crossborder ecommerce platform that helps retailers import from international manufacturers and provide them an end-to-end sourcing experience (order to delivery takes 10-12 days). Starting with the China to India trade corridor but plan to diversify in the future.

Addressing a basic pain point that importing is a broken experience; Retailers typically don’t have the resources, capabilities or the MoQs to be able to import directly, and instead rely on local importers. These importers have been doing business as-is since decades and dominated entirely by the unorganized sector. As such, they are fraught with their share of inefficiencies e.g. limited catalog breadth, access to retailers. Buyoco is attempting to solve not only basic pain-points for retailers (wrt to access to a global catalog), but also grow the size of the pie through various tech innovations.

Experienced team; alums of IITs, IIM, Harvard, McKinsey, HUL. Looking for raise a $0.3M seed round
