Bukalapak (IDXBUKA) is an Indonesian e-commerce company. It was founded in 2010 as an online marketplace to enable small and medium enterprises go online[1][2] and has expanded to support smaller traditional family owned businesses (warungs).[3][4][5]

As of 2019, the company has more than 4.5 million SME sellers, 70 million monthly active users, 1.9 million warung partners, and averaging two million transactions per day.[6][7] It is one of the largest e-commerce company in Indonesia and was the fourth unicorn startup in Indonesia.[8][4][5] Bukalapak's planned IPO in 2021 aims to raise up to US$1.5 billion, which would make it the largest listing ever on the Indonesian Stock Exchange.[9]

History[edit]

Bukalapak was founded in 2010 by Achmad Zaky with two of his college friends from Bandung Institute of Technology, Fajrin Rasyid and Nugroho Herucahyono.[10] Bukalapak's first major success was when folding bicycles started trending in 2010. At that time there were many communities selling various types of bikes and biking accessories, which played a significant role in increasing Bukalapak's users.

The nickname "Pelapak" is a common term used to call the sellers in Bukalapak.[11]

In 2019, Bukalapak laid off hundreds of employees. The layoffs were the result of an adjustment in strategy and efficiency improvements. The company is discontinuing its smart retail and internet-of-things divisions leading to job cuts among engineers.[12] The startup also shed some marketing roles because of overexpansion, but core functions like digital marketing remain unaffected.

Finances[edit]

Less than a year after being founded, Bukalapak received an additional capital from Batavia Incubator (a merged company from Rebright Partners, led by Takeshi Ebihara from Japanese Incubator and Corfina Group). In 2012, Bukalapak received another additional investment from GREE Ventures led by Kuan Hsu.[13]

In March 2014, Bukalapak announced that it received an investment by Aucfan, IREP, 500 Startups, and GREE Ventures.[14]

From Emtek's 2015 financial statements (49% owners of Bukalapak shares), it is known that Bukalapak has obtained investment fund from Emtek totaling up to Rp 439 billion. However, in 2015, Bukalapak is still losing Rp 229 billion, with revenues of Rp 6.4 billion.[15]

In January 2019, Bukalapak announced an undisclosed funding round by Mirae Asset-Naver Asia Growth Fund, a joint venture between Seoul-based Mirae Financial Group and Naver, the company behind LINE messaging service.[16]
