Bokksu Raises $22M in Series A Funding; at $100M Valuation


Bokksu, a New York and Tokyo, Japan-based Japanese snack subscription and e-grocer, raised $22m in Series A funding at a $100M valuation.

The round was led by Valor Siren Ventures with participation from Company Ventures, St Cousair, World Innovation Lab, Headline Asia, and Gaingels.

Founded in 2015 by Danny Taing, Bokksu bridges cultures by helping traditional Asian makers reach a global audience. After delivering over one million boxes of Japanese snacks to customers in 100 countries through its subscription service, the company launched Bokksu Market, a digital marketplace for premium Japanese lifestyle products, and Bokksu Grocery, an online grocery store that makes it easier for everyone to discover and buy authentic Asian food products.

The company plans to use the funding to expand product assortment, produce more original content, and hire new talent.
