August Debouzy assisted Tiger Global Management, US investment fund active in the medical field of new technologies, as part of its minority investment in the capital of Vestiaire Collective, the world’s first platform specializing in high-end second-hand clothing.
Tiger Global Management participated, alongside the French luxury group Kering and the historic shareholders of Vestiaire Collective in a fundraising totaling 178 millions of euros ($216 millions of dollars) conducted by the e-commerce site, thus allowing it to benefit from the status of “Licorne”. Tiger Global Management’s participation in the capital of Vestiaire Collective will accelerate the process of conquering the American market in which the French company is already present.
Since the recent item sector is expected to grow sharply, the fundraising will also allow Vestiaire Collective to accelerate its development in strategic innovation and data science.
