Venture capital is buying into online #marketplaces in a big way. In 2021, VC investors poured $139B into marketplaces, roughly doubling 2020s investment numbers. If you’re a business looking to launch a marketplace, there are four critical components you need to know:
— Be quick to market
— Prioritize the customer experience
— Don’t overspend by developing your own tech stack
— Invest in purpose-built marketplace technology instead
