So, what’s up next for them?
After raising one of the largest Series A financing rounds in India earlier this year, they’ve entered the unicorn club as the New Delhi-headquartered firm scales its Thrasio-like house of brands. They plan to invest in 100+ brands across verticals over the next three years, including fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), sports, home organization, and lifestyle.
GlobalBees helps these firms scale and sell to marketplaces and through other channels in India and outside of the South Asian market.

GlobalBees joins over 40 other India-based startups that have entered the unicorn club this year, up from 11 last year. Several high-profile investors, including SoftBank, Falcon Edge Capital, and Tiger Global have doubled down on their investments in the South Asian market in recent quarters.
Congrats to Nitin Agarwal and the entire GlobalBees team.
