Bazaar founders Saad Jangda and Hamza Jawaid always had weighty ambitions for their business, which is today announcing the successful completion of a $70 million Series B funding round. “We wanted to create an awesome company in Pakistan that people would want to work for,” says Jawaid. “We’d both had the privilege of a good education and spent time working abroad, and we were very conscious of this feeling that you had to leave Pakistan to make it.”
It's an exciting prospect for investors Dragoneer Investment Group and Tiger Global Management, which are leading Bazaar’s Series B round. The latest investment will take the funding raised by the company since its launch to more than $100 million.
