Why we invested:

We invested in Because due to the well-targeted business concept, elegant platform and Ashland’s leadership. She is driven, passionate and entrepreneurial-minded, and possesses a clear “sales DNA.” We believe that Because soon will be used by tens of thousands of ecommerce stores, as the company continues to unlock an unmet market need.
