Our Story

Meesho was started by Vidit Aatrey and Sanjeev Barnwal with the idea to enable mom & pop stores to sell online in 2016. They soon realised that their primary users were actually sellers who did not own a shop, but sold through their social network. They realised that this is how small businesses will work in the future and built a product to democratise social commerce and enable literally anyone to start their own venture.

They quickly pivoted to enabling social sellers/entrepreneurs monetise their network by providing supply, logistics and payments infrastructure.

The funding round also saw participation from existing investors such as Prosus Ventures, Facebook, Shunwei Capital, Venture Highway and Knollwood Investment.
