Inspired by "warung," the Malay word for a small family-owned business, we at Waroong Inc. aim to connect such shops throughout the world to local customers.

 

Whether it's the bodega around the corner in New York City or a mudi dokan in Dhaka, Waroong will enable every shop and their products to be discovered by customers in the expanding digital economy.

Little to no web presence due to limited digital knowledge, time, and money.

Waroong: An online-offline marketplace for everyday goods

Waroong: An online-offline marketplace for everyday goods

Inspired by "warung," the Malay word for a small family-owned store, at Waroong we reject the global trend that says the success of e-commerce must lead to a decline of in-store activity. Instead, our mission is to blur the line between online and offline shopping using a little bit of technology and a lot of education. In doing so, we will foster an advanced commerce environment, one where efficient online transactions increase meaningful in-store interactions. So whether it's the bodega around the corner or a mudi dokan in the bazaar, we will give every business the same chance to be discovered by new customers in the expanding digital economy.
