dstore cashed up for Christmas

Investors have backed online retailer, dstore, to the tune of four and a half million dollars.

The investment, by traditional clothing retailer, Sussan and venture capital firms AMWIN Management, JGL Investments and Hochma Development Fund, brings the total capital raised by dstore to $6.6 million.

Earlier this year, dstore received three quarters of a million dollars from both Looksmart International and offline sports retailer Rebel Sports.

Sussan, AMWIN, JGL and Hochma have agreed to make strategic investments in dstore's growth and development as part of the capital raising conducted by corporate advisory firm, Hindal Corporate.

Three of the investors each contributed at least $1 million.

According to of dstore CEO, David Gold, the partnership will dramatically boost the company's growth plans.

"We are excited by the powerful backing we have received from some of Australia's big names in the financial and retail industries. Investor confidence in dstore allows us to continue to develop a fresh approach to online shopping which has been sorely lacking in Australia."

The announcement follows dstore's recent equity swap with leading online gift site Wishlist.com.au and its acquisition of Toybox.com.

"We will continue to aggressively grow our business and expand our offerings in partnership with some of Australia's most recognised online retailers. Our efforts are already paying off with sales exceeding growth estimates by 100 per cent," Gold said.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
