Singapore-based consumer goods brand Cloversoft announced that it raised a seven-figure sum in a seed funding round led by Apricot Capital, a multi-asset private investment company.
The startup, which provides eco-friendly consumer goods, said the fresh funding will be used to accelerate the brand’s growth by expanding into international markets.
It also plans to invest in research and development to boost its range of plant-based household products.
Cloversoft was founded in 2014 and self-funded by former investment banking female duo Angela Sim and Lynn Yeo. It manufactures eco-friendly, high-quality household necessities, notably Singapore’s first unbleached bamboo tissue.
In an announcement, Cloversoft said it has seen consistent growth since its inception, with a three-fold growth year-on-year in sales on average and a growing customer base in the Asia-Pacific region, including Malaysia, Brunei, Cambodia, Myanmar and Taiwan.
