  • This online marketplace for laundry has more than 90,000 users.
  • For the past couple of years, the business has been seeing 10-30% growth each month.
  • Word of mouth and Google Ads have been their key marketing strategies
  • SudShare raised $10M in a seed round and intended to use the money to build a marketing team and a technical team.
