Trouva, an online marketplace for homeware and lifestyle brick and mortar boutiques, has raised a $10m Series A.

The round was led by BGF Ventures and drew the support of Index Ventures and Octopus Investments.

Trouva has built a proprietary technology platform to enable consumers to discover brands online. The platform also offers real-time ‘click and collect’, one-hour delivery.

Some 350 UK independent shops and boutiques are currently listed on Trouva.

"We will be using the investment to further develop our unique platform at existing stores within the Trouva community, while funding expansion to new shops and boutiques across the UK, and ultimately further afield too," said co-founder and CEO Mandeep Singh.
