Facebook + e-commerce + economic boom = a winning formula for a startup? BazzApp is betting on it.
Based in Brazil, BazzApp is an online marketplace that lets users buy, sell and exchange products via Facebook. Its transparent and interactive platform is completely curated by users. Tightly integrated with Facebook, it allows customers to rate products and sellers by liking, sharing and commenting. BazzApp is the first business of its kind in Brazil.
Lucas Aragão and Elisa Melecchi founded BazzApp earlier this year. Former employees of stand-out Brazilian startup Peixe Urbano, the two were inspired to give it a go with their own enterprise. They observed Facebook’s fast takeoff in Brazil as well as the rise of shops on fan pages. Moreover, Melecchi herself had sold fashion items on the social network in the past and noted a need for a solid tool to help her to do so. With this, BazzApp was born.
