Fulfillment by Amazon buyer Accel Club closes $170 million round – Tech.eu

Responding to the current craze to pick up fulfillment by Amazon e-commerce merchants, Accel Club has raised $170 million in a financing round for equity and venture capital.

Just like competitors Thrasio, Razor Group, SellerX, Heroes, etc., Accel Club is engaged in buying, building and boosting ecommerce stores through consolidation and a multitude of technology, tools and resources.

GAAP. Nothing we haven’t heard or seen yet. However …

What could be the differentiator behind Accel Club is the co-founder Maxim Firsov. In 2015, Max founded Russian Foodfox, a restaurant marketing, sales and delivery company that eventually purchased through, and became the foundation of the present Yandex Eats.

Before building his own company, Max was the business development project leader with: Lamoda, one of Russia’s largest online retailers. And to round out the trifecta, he has deep experience in economics, as a senior economist at interrosand share sales at the corporate investment bank at on and IFC Metropol.

Founded in February this year, the company already has offices in Europe, the US and China and currently focuses primarily on the US market, but plans to focus efforts on European and Asian platforms in the future.

The equity portion of Accel Club’s funding was led by: red seed, with the participation of Flyer One Ventures, while the debt financing round was led by Capital of the Northern Wall.

“We see how quickly the e-commerce market is changing, as classic consumer goods companies lose space online to small independent brands that offer the same or even more value to customers with their products. We are building a global technology-driven consumer products platform that will bring significant value to millions of customers around the world by leveraging our expertise in technology, marketing, operations and supply chain,” said Firsov.

Indian Parliament calls on Facebook India officials to discuss citizens’ rights and women’s safety

Indian Parliament summons Facebook India officials to discuss citizens’ rights and Women’s safety

Last year, former Facebook data scientist Sophie Zhang published a memo describing how Facebook is being used to influence global politics. She spoke about advanced systems in India used to influence the 2020 Delhi elections, along with similar systems in other developing countries around the world. Now, following her memo and a recent controversy surrounding Facebook’s policies and impact on politics, Parliament has called on Facebook India officials to discuss women’s civil rights and security.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology (IT) will be held on Nov. 29, with Congress leader Shashi Tharoor appointed as its chairman.

“To hear the views of Facebook India representatives on protecting civil rights and preventing the abuse of social/online news media platforms, including special emphasis on women’s safety in the digital space,” the committee’s agenda read.

Treating Social Media Like Publishers

Currently, our laws treat social media platforms as content intermediaries, and this approach has not done much to regulate the type of content that is published and distributed. With hate speech and fake news attributed to numerous municipal incidents across the country, the parliamentary panel set up last week to examine the impact of such platforms concluded they need a separate regulatory body, similar to the Press Council of India.

This will make the platforms more liable for user-generated content – ​​something companies like Facebook and Twitter don’t want to take any responsibility for. In addition, as more and more consumers in tier-2 and tier-3 cities use smartphones and set up social media accounts, data protection itself has become a widespread government concern. With this in mind, the Personal Data Protection Act, 2019, may be revised to protect non-personal data from misuse by such companies.

Treating Social Media Like Publishers

What about the Metaverse?

While the Indian government is moving in the right direction in protecting its citizens, there is certainly a much bigger threat on the horizon – the Metaverse. As people move into virtual realities and build lives there, today’s data protection and privacy laws may eventually become meaningless. Imagine controlling factual experiences that influence public opinion, transforming people from subscribers to one political ideology to completely opposite. Now imagine this happening so subtly that you barely have time to reassess your values.

If companies like Meta want to make virtual worlds accessible to Indian citizens, they need to provide transparency about how they will use customer data.

Need a Microsoft 365 Family subscription? Get a $50 Amazon Gift Card for just an extra $6

If you’ve been waiting for the right time to renew your Microsoft 365 subscription, this might be it. Amazon has a Cyber ​​Monday deal for an annual subscription to Microsoft 365 Family, which means you can get a $50 Amazon gift card with it for just $6. That means you get 12 months of Microsoft 365 for your family, plus a $50 Amazon gift card for just $106, instead of $150.

    Microsoft 365 Family 12 Month Subscription + $50 Amazon Gift Card ($44 off)
    Microsoft 365 gives you access to Microsoft’s Office apps, Microsoft Editor and Family Safety. You also get a $50 Amazon gift card for just $6 more.

Microsoft 365 Family includes all the standard Microsoft Office apps — Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook — for up to 5 users, plus 1 TB of OneDrive storage for each of those users (5 TB in total). It also includes recent additions such as premium Microsoft Editor features, including clarity, brevity, and other advanced suggestions. Plus, you get access to Family Safety features, including location tracking for your family members, screen time control, and parental controls for kids.

As mentioned above, the family plan works for up to five users and lasts for a whole year. Being a part of Microsoft 365 also means you get new features and updates every month at no extra cost, unlike Office’s perpetual licenses that are only updated every three years and require you to purchase a new license. Buying this subscription will also activate auto-renewal, so you’ll need to opt out if you don’t want to continue using it after the first year.

Plus, you get a $50 Amazon gift card to spend on anything you want, and you pay just $6 for it. That basically gives you an extra $44 to spend on just about anything you want on Amazon, which is a really nice deal.

Stop by our Cyber ​​Monday PC Deals hub to check out some of the best deals on PCs, accessories, and more — you might even be able to use that Amazon gift card on some of them. If you’re more interested in smartphones, we also have a list of Cyber ​​Monday deals focused on that.
