eBev raises $1.5m, moves to national expansion of B2B beverages trading platform

eBev has announced a raise of $1.5 million as it prepares a national roll out of its technology platform to Australia’s $6.4 billion wholesale beverage market.

The new shareholders are a range of professional and private investors.

Proceeds from the capital raising will allow eBev to expand its product offering and scale nationally. The funds raised will also allow eBev to build out its service offering to include all beverage types, and tools to help sales reps and payments.

eBev is now in a position to grow its member community and extend our offering across Australia. eBev’s target is to have national reach across all beverages by the end of FY17. eBev launched in NSW and is currently rolling out in Victoria and will be in Queensland and WA in the coming months.
