Category Planning Manager
CityMall is a community commerce platform focused on 300 million new internet users living in 400 small cities, towns and villages in India. We are working across categories like Grocery, FMCG, Fashion, General Merchandise, Mobiles & Electronics, Consumer Durables etc. Smaller towns and cities are untouched by traditional online e-grocers with most of them having presence in Metros and Tier-1 cities. Key bottlenecks are lack of trust, familiarity with browsing and purchasing online, low average order values (which makes economic viability a challenge for the platforms), and lack of credit in online channels (which neighborhood stores offer)
CityMall is a highly efficient channel to serve these consumers through "Community Leaders". They are the "Social" & "Geographical" connectors between end consumers and CityMall. They help us in acquiring customers, doing sales & marketing to retain wallet share as well as doing the last mile logistics in their communities making the community-led model more suitable for small towns, cities and villages
Founded by IIT Delhi and IIT Roorkee alumni with 9+ years of entrepreneurial experience, CityMall aims to create several thousands of such micro-entrepreneurs and empower them to create the go-to e-commerce platform for Bharat. CityMall is backed by top-tier VCs like Elevation, Accel, General Catalyst, Jungle Ventures and Waterbridge.
