Blanchard joins Shwy Property as investor, advisor
02 Jul 2017
The amount of funding invested by Blanchard in ShweProperty was not disclosed.
Blanchard (LinkedIn profile here) was a co-founder of SeLoger, which was sold to Axel Springer for €634 million ($723 million U.S.) in 2011.
He already works with a number of property verticals in Asia, being the chairman of Zameen.com in Pakistan, the chairman of a Dubai-based property portal Bayut.com, and working with BProperty.com – a leading real estate site in Bangladesh. He is also a member of the board and investor at Kerawa.com, a classified site in Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire.
The funding from Blanchard comes on the heels of a Series A funding round that ShweProperty completed earlier this year (we reported here).
