Depop is a social shopping platform that enables creative entrepreneurs to build commercial channels for their products. It has become home to millions of young teenage entrepreneurs who are building their own communities, creating their own brands and generating revenue.

The investment will support the global growth of the platform, particularly in the US, and scale the business. This will include the opening of bricks and mortar beta spaces, which will help us get even closer to our users and experiment with new formats. We are excited to work with Octopus Ventures. They have a strong portfolio and are experts in accelerating growth of lifestyle and marketplace companies
