Buying and selling pre-loved items has never been easier – thanks to Carousell, Singapore’s largest and fastest growing mobile classifieds marketplace. Since its launch in 2012, Carousell has expanded to more than 19 major cities worldwide in four and a half years, including in Hong Kong, the Philippines and Australia. Recently, it also acquired Duriana, a Malaysian-based online marketplace. This is its third acquisition in less than six months.
The company is a perfect fit for Keppel Land, which has been attracting more tech companies to its office spaces in recent years. Mr Quek Siu Rui, Co-founder and CEO of Carousell, spoke to KeppelLandLive about the company’s decision to relocate its office from Blk71, a tech start-up hub, to Keppel Towers 2 at Tanjong Pagar Road in early 2017, and how it’s like to work there.
