In the past 12 months, investors have poured $9 Billion into the Next Big Thing in e-commerce – the Aggregator. These firms have been raising capital and buying brands at a great pace, with the expectation that professionalized management can deliver economies of scale and great return on investment. For a sense of scale, Amazon itself reported $226 Billion in e-commerce revenue in 2020. In 2018, less capital was raised for retailers as a whole, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Seller Rocket is an e-commerce PR firm with deep connections in the ecosystem. We are excited by the investments in this sector and will be updating this resource regularly.
All amounts are capital raised as of 9 June, 2021, based on the research we have compiled to date.
