With D2C Unlocked, we aim to bring founders from across sectors for knowledge sharing on key business aspects to learn, share, collaborate and grow together. Over the years, we have been able to create a fledgling community of enthusiastic entrepreneurs by empowering them with the right guidance and connecting them with enablers through our Booster Package. Maharashtra has one of the highest concentrations of D2C brands in the country and we aim to empower them through our community efforts to enable them to fulfil customer requirements in a meaningful manner and create a shared value for the ecosystem”.
In this endeavour, Simpl has curated a Booster Package which provides exclusive access to services from various D2C enablers such as brand building, digital marketing and e-commerce consulting that helps boost business. Recently, the company expanded its Booster Package to offer credit access to D2C companies at affordable interest rates with flexible terms in a complete digital fashion.
