Today’s episode of Between 2 Term Sheets brings us a conversation between host Owen Matthews and Saba Mohebpour, CEO at Spocket. Spocket is a dropshipping marketplace that seamlessly allows ecommerce merchants to access the best wholesale priced products online from thousands of global suppliers.
Spocket, an acronym for “store in your pocket”, is a Vancouver based company that has experienced exponential growth in the almost 2 years it’s been in existence. The thriving business model came to Saba out of a problem he experienced as an ecommerce retailer himself.
“What if I created a platform that allowed thousands of other online retailers to come find discounted products and push them to their store with just one click? Inventory management is all updated in real-time with Spocket.”
Listen to this episode to hear Saba and Owen Discuss:
- the fundraising process
- advice to entrepreneurs
- why you should solely focus on the business before thinking about funding
