Waysia raises a €10M Series A and joins da family!
We thought about you: normally you are reading this email after lunch… and if not, we’re very sorry about that because we’re gonna talk about Asian food! Yummmmmmy 😋
Did you know that you will never – ever – need to wait more than an hour (or go to Tang Frères for the bravest!), when you have your Asian food cravings?!
🥟Pad thai, Pho soup, Gyoza or Bao… Yes, your Asian groceries are now a few clicks away thanks to…Waysia (ex-Alorsfaim), who made it for you!
The greatest part of the story is that they have just raised €10M with our latest fund, Dastore, dedicated to retail & ecommerce supported by Carrefour. Banyan Pacific Capital, a North American VC fund, alongside current shareholders iFly.vc, Cathay Innovation, Goodwater Capital and Convivialité Ventures, the VC arm of Pernod Ricard, are taking part in the round as well.
The leader of Asian e-grocery has bigger ambitions and aims to conquer the whole European Market… and we’ll be there to support them during the journey! 🎉
Let us tell you a little about their history … Waysia (ex-Alorsfaim) started in 2018 in Paris with Asian food delivery. With growing demand they launched an online grocery service in 2020, during the pandemic, for our greatest pleasure! We have always known that a crisis never stops the best ideas.
Their precise execution has enabled them to launch their services in 16 cities in Europe already. Impressive, right! 🇪🇺
A big congrats to the whole team, Yejun Fan, Lianxiong Xu, Shichao CHENG for this new step.
