        The funds for this latest round of funding will be primarily used for the development of new products, as well as geographic expansion of the operations

        SINGAPORE – 11 November 2021- Milieu Insight, the award-winning consumer research and analytics company, announced that it has secured US$5 million in its latest round of funding led by MassMutual Ventures (MMV) Southeast Asia, with participation from OSK Ventures International Berhad, Genesis Alternative Ventures, as well as several private investors. The firm raised this round of funding on the back of strong growth in 2021 so far, and the funds will be used to bolster product innovation and accelerate the development of new SaaS-oriented consumer insight offerings.

        Following the company’s previous fundraise in October 2019, Milieu expanded their commercial operations to cover six markets, including Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Funds raised from this round will be allocated to expand Milieu’s reach beyond Southeast Asia.

        The company has seen explosive growth over the last two years, which includes growing their mobile app user base from 500,000 users to more than two million in 2020, as well as increasing their customer base by 300% from 45 enterprise customers at the start of 2020 to 180 in October 2021. The company has also quadrupled its monthly revenue since their October 2019 fundraise, and 2021 performance indicates Milieu is on track to achieve its projected growth targets.

        Milieu recently launched several new products, including an automated brand tracking solution, as well as a programmatic activation offering known as Milieu Activate, which enables advertisers to target mobile ads more effectively.

        Milieu is recognised as a market leader in its field. The firm has garnered nine industry awards since 2019, including Campaign Asia’s Most Valuable Product, Marketing Interactive’s Market Research and Programmatic Agency of the Year, as well as several Mobile Experience (Mob-Ex) awards.

        Comments on the fundraising

        Milieu Insight’s Founder and CEO, Gerald Ang, said, “As consumer preferences and behaviours evolve rapidly, we see a tremendous opportunity to revolutionise market research to better meet the needs of business leaders today. These funds will help us develop more exciting, innovative products and fuel our expansion. We have demonstrated sustained growth and this is a testament to the resilience in our business model. COVID-19 has accelerated the rise of the digital economy and we will continue on with our mission to use technology to empower organisations to connect with consumers at a deeper level. In time, we hope to inspire change globally by sparking meaningful conversations between brands and their customers around the world everyday”.

        On leading the round, Anvesh Ramineni of MassMutual Ventures, said, “We continue to be impressed with the Milieu team and everything they’ve accomplished over the last few years, especially since the start of the global pandemic. Their solutions are seeing strong demand, and their innovative approach is uniquely positioned to win in the field of consumer insight and analytics. As such, we’re very pleased to continue to work with and support the Milieu team.”

        On their participation in the latest fundraising, Amelia Ong of OSK Ventures  said, “Understanding how customers think and feel is fundamental to the success of every business. Milieu’s unique ability to capture actionable insights that help enhance how brands engage with their audience puts them on the leading edge of change in the industry. We’re excited to join Milieu’s journey as they continue to scale their offerings beyond the region, especially in capturing new narratives behind the rapidly-evolving consumer behaviour, post-COVID.
