New Delhi- In its first-ever equity investment in an Indian start-up, Facebook on Thursday announced an investment in Meesho, a platform that enables Indian entrepreneurs to establish online businesses via social channels. On November 5, 2018, the company received Series C funding worth $50 million from investors including DST Partners, RPS Ventures, and Shunwei Capital.

We are excited about India and its rapidly rising internet ecosystem. "We have participated in fuelling India Internet and now want to play a clear and direct role in propelling job creation".
