It is good to say that B2B commercial marketplace is the eventual fate of the world. Being an online platform, which is operated between buyers and sellers, that opens to purchasers and dealers in a specific industry is what the world has been witnessing. From 2019 when Covid began to spread, B2B commercial setup flourished. We have seen Bazaar, Retailo, and Dastgyr with comparable points and this online cycle works easily. Your platform is freely run online between a buyer and a seller. Purchasers and dealers can enroll themselves in it and market their products according to the demand. A startup that means to change retail supply chains in the area with a tech-empowered distribution marketplace that is Tajir.
Tajir is founded in 2018 by brother Babar and Ismail Khan. It sells inventory to Kiryana stores locally in Pakistan through its mobile app. This startup serves retailers in Lahore and some parts of Central Punjab, and has over 1,000 SKUs including soft drinks, hair products, biscuits and snacks, and food staples like rice, flour, and wheat, on its application.

Tajir raises $17million Series A led by Kleiner Perkins
B2B e-commerce marketplace Tajir raised $17 million in a Series A round led by one of the leading American VC firms Kleiner Perkins. It is the first investment by the American VC in a Pakistani startup. Furthermore, the round also included the participation of Y Combinator Continuity Fund, AAVCF, Fatima Gobi Ventures, Flexport, Golden Gate Ventures, Liberty City Ventures, VentureSouq, and angel investors including Flexport CEO Ryan Petersen and Figma CEO Dylan Field.
