Asia’s largest mobile classifieds marketplace Carousell has announced that it plans to expand and set up an office in Australia. The move is part of an attempt to capitalize on Australia's booming ecommerce industry that’s tipped to exceed $24B by 2018.
Carousell is a mobile marketplace app that allows users to sell everything from fashion, furniture to everything automotive.
One of the founders Sui Rui Quek told Australian Financial Review that Carousell plans to establish both a physical and digital presence in Australia.
“For Australia, we have a dedicated product and marketing staff with a team of about two people on the ground in Melbourne…but we want to scale up that team, especially with the growth we’re seeing in the community, and we’re hoping to double it by early next year”.
