ZALORA is a Southeast Asia-focused Zappos clone launched by the German Samwer brothers’ infamous Rocket Internet incubator, which we recently reported is continuing its major push into the region with founding partner Marc Samwer at the helm.
ZALORA was launched a mere eight months ago and already operates in six markets with over 1,000 employees: Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia.
JP Morgan says it also invested in ZALORA operations in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Other ZALORA backers include Invus and Summit Partners.
