Bjarke Mikkelsen began his journey from a very young age. He founded Daraz in 2012. In 2015, he took a leap from investment banking to ecommerce industry because he decided to do something different. He wanted to target the ecommerce industry with great success, he wanted to be in the right industry at the right time in the right market in order to take advantage and do something cutting edge. It is quite surprising how he managed to make a huge success of the shift but according to him, the skills he brought from his previous career helped him quite a lot in the ecommerce. For him, shifting from London to South Asia was a more significant difference. In this same year his company Daraz secured €50 million in its Series B funding to support the expansion of operations across its markets. CDC Group, a state-owned Development Finance Institution (DFI) in the UK, invested €20 million alongside a €30 million investment from Daraz’s existing majority shareholder, Asia Internet Holdings.
