Poundit is an e-commerce site for electronics & accessories where customers can shop risk free, enjoy
price savings, and experience genuine service. Since its inception, it has built partnerships with top
tech brands such as Sony, GoPro, ASUS, JBL, Harman Kardon, and Otterbox, enabling the site to offer
authentic and authorized, top-notch products at competitive prices. With a fast-growing customer base,
the company is seeing triple digit growth and with Cocoon’s support, it’s gearing up to take it to the
next level.

“We were a group of friends passionate about giving fellow Filipinos a hassle free experience when
shopping for electronics online. Our main focus is the customer and our aim is to give them an
experience that we ourselves love. We’ve done this by providing a combination of curated selection,
price savings and genuine customer service. Poundit carries only the best brands in the world, and we
partner directly with them to give customers risk free shopping and product discounts,” said Kristian
Salvo, Founder and CEO, Poundit.

“Poundit is our first investment in the Philippines,” said Will Klippgen, Managing Partner, Cocoon
Capital. “Ecommerce is undergoing massive growth here with a transition to more professional,
customer-centric players that make sure customers have an excellent journey from browsing to
unboxing. Poundit is one of the most impressive startups we have seen in Southeast Asia since we
started investing.”

“Gadgets make us happy and we wanted to spread this feeling to our customers by delivering
happiness in a box. This investment will help us do just that,” added Salvo.

With its fresh funding, Poundit will focus on building its team, expanding its reach, and improving the
customer experience. First on the list is a revamped online store to attract and engage more customers.
The site will also move from www.YouPoundIt.com to www.Poundit.com to make it even easier to find.
