Otta's take on Razor Group

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Since the explosion of online shopping in the last decade, the range of businesses which consumers have access to has never been higher. Thousands of small businesses now operate online, and with platforms like Ebay and Amazon giving them the outreach they need to succeed, the online market for small businesses continues to grow.

It's this trend that Razor Group wants to capitalise on. Its business model is centred around the acquisition of Amazon-based small retailers, which, once acquired, become part of the 'Group'. Razor Group gets to select businesses which are already performing well, based on data provided by businesses keen to sell, and then pick out those which it wants to take over. This strategy minimises its risk, cutting out the need to get a business up and running in the first place and ensuring that it can jump in right at the profit-making stage. After buying these companies, Razor Group deploys new growth capital to lift them onto a new stage along its development curves. Essentially, it takes a winning formula and adds to it - something beneficial for them and consumers.

Now, having secured some serious funding from investors with extensive e-commerce expertise, Razor Group has a real shot at building one of the largest consumer goods holdings worldwide.

Total funding - $250.5m

Company values

  • ENTREPRENEURSHIP - We are entrepreneurs at heart. There will be tough moments, and things won’t always go our way. We have to be able to bounce back and continue working hard while remaining true to ourselves
  • RADICAL TRANSPARENCY - Making mistakes is part of the path towards excellence – but it’s better to take that road than never leave your comfort zone at all. Own up to mistakes, learn from them, share them, and take that insight with you as you push forward
  • TAKING CHARGE - At Razor, we believe that actions speak louder than words, and we want to see our employees take that action. Don’t wait for opportunities to come along – grab them as you see them
  • TEAMWORK - We’re all on the same rocket-ship, sharing the same vision and pursuing the same goal. If you see a fellow astronaut struggling, be the helping hand they need – even if it’s not your direct responsibility
  • RATIONAL OPTIMISM - Sometimes, you have to believe it to achieve it. Razor would not be where it is today without a tad bit of craziness, a vision a size too big, and the rebellious determination to make it happen anyway. We are dreamers and optimists in our minds, but rationalists in our actions
