Zilingo team

The e27 Community has voted again, and we have decided to give the honour of Startup of the Month (February) to fashion e-commerce Zilingo.

On February 12, Zilingo announced a US$226 million Series D funding round from a host of investors that include Temasek, Sequoia Capital India, Singapore-based Burda Principal Investments, Sofina (Belgium) and EDBI.

This brings the total funds raised by the three-and-half-year-old startup to US$308 million. In 2018, Zilingo claimed it has grown four times in the past 12 months after investing in building up its B2B and supply chain capabilities, and delivering them through the Zilingo AsiaMall and Z-Seller platform.

As runner-up, the e27 Community has also voted for Happy Marketer, a data-driven digital marketing agency.

The company has recently made headline when it was acquired by Dentsu Aegis Network.
