I am glad to share with all of you that our one year qualification by the US Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) to raise capital from the public globally will end in July 26, 2018.
Our fundraising campaign for the last 10 months was challenging, exciting and fun; we travelled to many countries – including US, Canada, UK, Australia, South Korea, Nepal, India, Qatar and more. We met hundreds of Sagoon fans, supporters and believers, and received overwhelming support and wishes.
Today, we have more than 3000 supporters around the world, including Hindustan Times, and every day, the numbers is growing fast. My co-founders, Kabin Sitoula and Swati Dayal and I would like to thank you all for your belief and trust. Without your support, Sagoon will not be here today.
As you all know, Sagoon is a value–based company; adding value to the daily lives of millions of users is our prime focus. We have a vision of a world where everyone makes money while they socialize. We want to change social media the way it is designed to use and interact. We call Sagoon a one-of-its-kind social movement – Connect. Share. Earn - building meaningful connections, sharing useful information and earning while socializing.
Sagoon is a Delaware – USA Company, founded and supported by people from Nepali and Indian origin. Our aim is to build a new social world from South Asia for the world. We want to explore entrepreneurship, create jobs in South Asia and innovate solutions for global issues. Currently, we are focusing on how many changes we can bring to Nepal and India. In the future, we will be judged by how much progress we have brought to the world and how we have changed people’s daily lives. This is a BIG challenge but at the same time it is a rare opportunity too. Therefore, it requires deep thinking and long-term investment plan and partnership with wonderful talents, financial institutions and many others.
Our business mission is to make everyone happy: We offer users cash rewards for spending their time on our platform. We help business partners earn more revenue by doing business with us. We believe reinventing the concept of social gifting and coupon sharing would improve people’s relationships with one another and also create a BIG new market for our gifting and coupon partners. Doing this, we are solving a large–scale problem that our society is going through for decades.
Our “day one” started when we launched our Android App in Jan 2018 in New Delhi. This entire year, we will focus on building Sagoon platform that would support millions of users’ engagements and also the integration of Sagoon business partners into our platform for running their businesses. Currently, our platform is used by more than 2.5 million users. Users’ growth is our prime focus; along with working towards it, we will continue to develop products and technology that improve the users’ daily lives at large scale.
Like any other growth-stage company, Sagoon’s fundraising is also a part of the growth strategy. We may seek private and public investment in the future to grow our business; however, please note that our current offering of $23/share will not be available after July 26, 2018.
I encourage all our users, fans, supporters and believers to join us before July 26, 2018 and share our vision.
Disclaimer- Please note, investing in an early stage company like Sagoon, is very risky. Please read our offering circular before making any investment.

Sagoon Surpasses $1.9M in Regulation A+ (Mini-IPO) Equity Crowdfunding Capital 09 November 2017, WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) Company has now raised more than $3.2M in funding as it prepares for consumer launch of its social commerce app...
Company has now raised more than $3.2M in funding as it prepares for consumer launch of its social commerce app
Sagoon, the social commerce platform enabling its users to Connect, Share, and Earn, today announced it has surpassed $1.8M in Regulation A+ (Mini-IPO) equity crowdfunding capital. The Company has now raised more than $3.2M in funding in 2017 as it readies to launch its mobile app next month.
The Company launched its Regulation A+ offering earlier in 2017, offering Class C common stock at $23 per share with a minimum investment of $1,000. Since, it has been supported by more than 2,000 investors globally that share Sagoon’s vision of a social commerce platform that helps users to Connect, Share, and Earn.
With approximately one million users, and a team of 40 employees (including those who have worked at Google and IBM), Sagoon seeks to pioneer the monetization of social media, enabling its users to earn financial rewards while connecting with their friends and loved ones, and sharing experiences from their day-to-day lives. Funds raised will be used for, but not limited to, the continued development of the Company’s mobile app, which will launch in December.
“We are proud and excited of the support we have received thus far from investors around the world that share our vision of a better social network. We have worked incredibly hard to build Sagoon into a platform that meets the needs and interests of a global user base – one where they can not only connect with friends and family, but also engage in social commerce initiatives and earn money for their activity,” said Govinda Giri, founder and CEO, Sagoon. “We have identified an underserved market of users who are unsatisfied with current social offerings, and believe that our team of technology leaders has us uniquely positioned to succeed within that market. We hope those that share our vision will continue to support us.”
Sagoon solves a glaring problem in today’s U.S. social media landscape – U.S. social networks are not set up for ecommerce. Direct commerce between users and sellers and amongst users is prohibited, and users earn no financial rewards for being a direct source of revenue. There is also a missed opportunity to make gift cards, coupon offers, and discounts purely social.
Regulation A+ offerings provide an opportunity for the non-accredited general public to invest and own stock in the company. The company is currently accepting investments from public and institutional investors until November 30, 2017 and can be accessed through our website http://www.sagoon.com/invest, where the Offering Circular is posted.
Sagoon is an early-stage social commerce platform that offers users a chance to make money while socializing. The word “Sagoon” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Shakuna”, meaning “an auspicious moment” or “good luck”. First launched as a search engine in 2009, Sagoon evolved into a social commerce platform in 2014 with the mission of helping people to better Connect, Share, and Earn. To connect with Sagoon, visit http://www.sagoon.com or “Like” the Company on Facebook. To invest in the company through its Regulation A+ offering, please click here.

Today we have come to the last day of Dashain - the longest and the most celebrated Hindu festival amongst Nepalis all over the world. How could Sagoon family forgo Dashain without celebrating it?
We celebrated it in traditional Nepali style this year at our office. Without Rato Tika (a mixture of vermillion powder, rice and yoghurt) Dashain does not feel like Dashain at all. Honoring the most integral part of the celebration, our co-founder Swati put Rato Tika on the foreheads of all Sagoon members bestowing good fortune, health and plenty of prosperity.
Govinda Giri, our founder was present with us on Skype where he showered traditional blessings on us.
