mission is to individualise the online shopping experiences. We are currently doing that with
just over 100 merchants globally. I cannot be more excited for the opportunity to unlock the
ecosystems of our investors and help tens of thousands of merchants bring the in-store
shopping experience online” said Michael.

merchants through their retail experience platform. We believe there is an opportunity to
bring the in-store experience to merchant websites and preezie enables that through a
simple integration.” said Hein Vogel, CEO of Touch Ventures.
