Our Story:

It was an incidental meeting with a few small business owners who had discovered the power of social platforms in starting and scaling their business that led to the inception of Meesho. The founders quickly realized that this is how small businesses will work in the future and built a product to democratize social commerce and enable literally anyone to start this.

Our Journey:

Meesho - short for - meri shop- - was preceded by FashNear, a hyperlocal fashion discovery.

Our Mission is to focus on growing to 20 million resellers by 2020.
