Congratulations, Coupang!

By David Singer

We would like to congratulate the Coupang team on their NYSE debut, taking the next step in their mission to set a new global standard for e-commerce companies. We’re proud to have led Coupang’s Series D funding in 2011. Since that time, we have learned a tremendous amount about leadership and the benefits of being obsessively focused on the customer from Bom Kim and his team.

Bom has compounded Coupang’s growth through an unwavering commitment to exceptional service inside of a prescient vision as to what the future of e-commerce will be. We’re proud to have been a part of the journey, and look forward with excitement to the great work the Coupang team will produce as a public company. We only wish we had as exceptional an ecommerce experience here in the United States.
