Savyour raised $3.3m to accelerate its online expansion
Umair Gadit, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Savyour said, “Over 64% of Pakistan’s population is below 30, which means you have a new wave of shoppers who are demanding, tech-savvy, and seek more value for their money to counter inflation. Savyour acts as the ultimate shopping companion for buyers by providing them with the best rewards and curation of local brands.” He further added; “Pakistan’s commerce sector faces a number of challenges; the lack of consumer trust and confidence, being dominated by SMEs that lack both talents and resources to grow, and having no dedicated discovery platform. Digitizing this space will open up new opportunities and help level the field, for both consumers and businesses.”
Savyour raised $3.3m to accelerate its online expansion and launch the in-store feature for the platform. While talking about the company’s expansion plan, Umair said that their immediate goal is to strengthen their presence is not just in the major cities of the country, but also in far-flung areas where there is immense potential. Overall, Savyour has seen 52% month-over-month growth since its launch and disbursed over Rs. 100 million in cashback to their users. Currently, Savyour’s user base extends across 58 Pakistani cities.
