Dahmakan

In 2017, Dahmakan was the first Malaysian startup to be accepted to Y Combinator (Silicon Valley based accelerator with alumni including Stripe, Airbnb, Reddit and Dropbox). To date, Dahmakan has raised over US$28m in funding from global VCs such as Rakuten Capital, Partech Partners, Y Combinator, White Star Capital, Woowa Brothers and private investments from the F&B veterans such as the former CEO of Nestlé Germany

Currently operational in Malaysia and Thailand, customers can order chef-made meals to be delivered to office and homes using the website and mobile apps. The product offering constantly changes with 40+ new dishes monthly from a growing database of 2,000+ tested dishes starting at a price point of USD3.

By combining the entire value chain, Dahmakan controls all aspects of the customer experience from food product development to last mile delivery from “satellite” distribution kitchens.

White Star

“We chose White Star Capital for their extensive global presence and for their track record in the sector, with successful investments in Freshly and Butternut Box. We hope that being part of the same family and leveraging their experience and knowledge base, not just within the firm but within their portfolio, will add immense value and will help us scale faster.”
