Goldman Sachs Invests in Hubba, World’s Biggest Product Network

 

The world of commerce is undergoing significant changes. At Hubba, we get to experience these trends from our vantage point, overseeing a community of over 40,000 companies.

We have observed three predominant developments. First, commerce is no longer relegated to the traditional retail channel. Consumers can now purchase products through Marketplaces like Amazon; social media sites like Facebook, Messenger Chatbots; IoT-enabled devices and an ever-expanding consumer shelf. Second, to stay ahead retailers are continuously looking for new brands to carry that will set them apart from their competitors. Third, new models have allowed the cost of creating a brand to drop dramatically, which has led to a proliferation of millions of new smaller brands.

Hubba is at the epicenter of this new wave. We help amazing and interesting brands get discovered and carried by retailers looking to be unique, across all channels.

Today, I am so proud to announce that Goldman Sachs has joined our existing investors to help us achieve our goal of being the largest and most dominant product network.

 

Goldman Sachs, the world’s most discerning and prestigious investor, selected Hubba as the company to back because they saw us owning the power position in this next generation of commerce. They know how to spot winning companies –   this is the group who led Goldman Sachs’ investments in Facebook, Uber, Pinterest and Spotify.

This investment, our Series B funding round, will allow us to focus on the thing we care most about: getting our community to love Hubba even more by continuously demonstrating value. We will do that by investing in new initiatives and functionality to help our users grow their business both domestically and internationally.

We are so fortunate to have built such a special community and are looking forward to continuing on this journey with you.

 

Sincerely,

Ben and the entire team at Hubba
