OREA Bazaar was a lucky winner at Podim Conference Pitching Competition finals which secured an FRC investment of 100.000€ and an exclusive place in the next FRCS22 Accelerator program from Fil Rouge Capital.
Instead of the intended 50.000 €, Fil Rouge Capital invested 100.000 € in the Bosnian startup OREA Bazaar, a platform for buying and selling handmade, original products with a local label based in Southeast Europe.
According to the OREA Bazaar website:
With over 150 active shops and more than 5000 items, OREA is the largest online marketplace for handmade items in Southeast Europe.
OREA is a community in which we have invested knowledge, effort and time to find people like us. Or, more specifically, to find people like you.
OREA is an online marketplace for the purchase of handmade, original products with a local label.
