#Asia With $600k funding, flower delivery startup sets its sights on weddings


Whether you want to surprise a loved one or simply design your home or workplace, BloomThis wants to be your wingman.

The Malaysian startup delivers specially handpicked flowers in a bespoke box on-demand and on a subscription basis. Today the startup announced it has raised US$600,000 in seed funding from Singapore-based VC firm REAPRA to “build up its delivery business into the wedding space.”

It also plans to foray into new markets such as Singapore and Indonesia.

Founded by husband-and-wife Giden Lim and Penny Choo in 2015, the company claims to have seen over a thousand percent surge in sales for the past year.

We’ve contacted the founders for more on their funding and expansion plans.

REAPRA has so far invested in 40 startups in agriculture, healthcare, education, hospitality, digital media, travel, real estate, and aerospace.
