Companies can easily grow with sales, success, and solid revenue, but when they need to grow large quickly to match the demand of wide scale markets, capital investment becomes key for big moves. Rokt did just that when it secured a $325 million Series E block implemented by Tiger Global, boosting the ecommerce agency’s market strength to $2.4 billion in market capitalization in 2022.
The additional liquidity and capital give Rokt’s leadership a solid springboard to boost its international reach as well as bolster research and development for additional technology breakthroughs. The money will be used to fuel the newly minted unicorn’s international expansion as it prepares to go public in 2023, reportedly. Rokt, an e-commerce marketing startup based here in New York, announced Thursday it has raised a whopping $325 million in fresh Series E funding.
Combining both a successful market position with the ability to capitalize on opportunities as they become available is a critical strategy cornerstone in Rokt’s success moving forward. It’s also the reason why well over 3,000 different brands are already invested in Rokt’s ecommerce tools and platforms for their own success as well.
A Standout in the Ecommerce World
The key breakthrough that Rokt provides versus others with ecommerce technology is a result of the company’s strategy. Rather than just building programs and apps, or designing platforms to provide the basic functions of ecommerce, Rokt focuses on the customer experience.
Time and again, this approach has proven to be far more successful with both customer retention as well as increased revenue flow on an ongoing basis. With the latest Series E investment now secured, Rokt can push the boundaries of its current approach and realize even greater success with new applications, market penetration, and creativity.
A good amount of credit goes to Rokt’s management team who have had the persistence and commitment to push the company through its growth stages and reach its current point of success.
Their shared vision and applied skills have made all the difference, especially through challenges that other similar companies have plateaued and been unable to break through.
Change Continues to Keep Happening Fast
Of course, no one can rest on their laurels for too long. The technology field and digital ecommerce solutions are constantly evolving. What originally started out as just a basic website with a shopping cart system has now evolved into applications of AI, omnichannel marketing, transmedia experience, multimedia design strategies, and a whole lot more?
The field is now in full explosion with what can be done with Internet-based engagement technology, and each year brings forward new approaches, especially in immersion and customer behavior data capture and action translation. As it has with previous funding rounds, Rokt, its Series E round, is rewarding its employees and current investors for their hard work and support by providing them with a liquidity opportunity.
