In December 2021, the Hurun Research Institute released the Global Unicorn Index 2021, on which Dmall ranks No. 305 this year with a US$2.5 Billion valuation after it closed $418.5 million in Series C round. This is the second year in a row that Dmall has been named, and the valuation of Dmall has increased 1.5 times since 2020.  

The Hurun Research Institute in association with the Guangzhou City Commercial Bureau and High Technology Industry District released the Global Unicorn Index 2021 is a ranking of the world’s start-ups founded in the 2000s, worth at least a billion dollars and not yet listed on a public exchange. According to the index, there are 1,058 unicorns in 42 countries and 221 cities worldwide, double the number since 2020. Even though the pandemic, Hurun Report chairman and chief researcher Rupert Hoogewerf still called 2021 the “most successful year for startups ever”.

Consumer behavior has been irreversibly altered as a result of the pandemic. According to Twilio’s report, 97% of enterprise decision-makers believe the pandemic sped up their company’s digital transformation. Retailers are facing new challenges—providing a safe, frictionless, personalized consumer experience online and offline.
