Express Stores, which recently raised seed funding of Rs 8 Crores, led by venture capital firm Venture Highway – founded by Neeraj Arora ex-Whatsapp, Samir Sood, ex Google – is looking to expand its team.
The Indian branded omni-channel chain of Bharat’s Kiranas, headquartered in Gurugram, is a 360-degree solution provider, expanding its team across various roles in 2021, as it expects a significant growth momentum in its online and offline business channels. It will hire in the areas of technology, business development, FMCG supply chain and operations.
With the fresh hiring, its team is expected to double in strength, with its technology team set to grow more than thrice its present size. The fresh hiring will meet the high growth appetite of the business and build end-to-end technology solutions leading to enhanced consumer and partner experience.
Express Stores offers a 360-degree solution to retailers, helping them deliver greater value to consumers. While its partner stores end up as branded stores, its retailers experience hassle-free retailing.
With the objective of empowering local Kirana stores, Express Stores’ franchise model leverages technology both at the backend in supply chain, inventory management, partner management, intelligence and at the front end in consumer and partner facing technology.
Other investors who have invested in VMWare include Kunal Bahl, Rohit Bansal (Snapdeal), Anupam Mittal (People Group) and Amit Singhal (Google).
Apoorv Jain, co-founder & CEO, Express Stores, shares that the mission of Express Stores is to “organise and modernise small Kirana stores and make the business profitable from the first month itself.”
