Amazon acquires Souq.com

Commentary

After dominating the US and European ecommerce markets and having its presence felt in India and China, Amazon is setting its sights on an even more ambitious goal: to conquer the Middle East. The ecommerce giant recently acquired Dubai-based Souq.com, the biggest ecommerce platform in the Middle East for $650 million. Described as a clone of Amazon, Souq.com boasts of having 45 million site visits per month and delivers to seven countries including the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar. According to reports, although the entry of Amazon could bolster the ecommerce industry in the region, the acquisition is not the ideal exit investors had hope for Souq.com, which was already valued at $1 billion during its last round of funding in 2016.

Will bike sharing be the next big thing?

Commentary

Bike sharing startups are putting more people on two wheels like never before. In Europe, US, Japan, and China, bike sharing is becoming increasingly popular, so popular that research by global strategy consulting firm Roland Berger indicates that the bike-sharing market will grow to $6 billion by 2020. Investors have likewise taken notice. China’s Mobike has a total of $325 million in venture capital, while its rival Ofo has $580 million in its war chest. In the US, Limebike has recently raised $12 million in venture funding from a consortium of investors. As bike-sharing companies gain traction and younger consumers continue to trend away from ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft, it looks like bike-sharing programs are here to stay.
