Dugun acquires Anneysen

Two of our portfolio companies just joined forces. Dugun, Turkey’s leading online wedding marketplace connecting couples with merchants during their wedding planning process, acquired¬†Anneysen, Turkey’s leading content site for aspiring and current moms.

The acquisition makes a lot of sense for both parties. Thinking about having babies, and often eventually having them, is a natural progression from getting married. So it makes sense for users to be able to access information about and navigate both of these very important life events on the same platform.

I congratulate Pinar and Aylin, the founders of Anneysen, and their team on the sale. I also congratulate Emek, the founder of Dugun, and his team on the strategically important acquisition.
