The brand plans to announce the names of the other four brands, one at a time, in the coming days.
G.O.A.T Brand Labs has announced the acquisition of 5 D2C brands, including that of Home & Lifestyle Brand - Chumbak. With these acquisitions, the size of G.O.A.T Brand Labs' portfolio has reached 20.
Chumbak is a brand with unique Indian aesthetics with a wide base of loyal consumers. The brand has strong sales on both online and offline channels. G.O.A.T Brand Labs plans to grow Chumbak to INR 500 Cr by 2025, leveraging its deep capabilities in brand building, digital marketing, online and offline growth and expansion into international markets.
Last year G.O.A.T Brand Labs acquired multiple D2C brands including The Label Life, India’s top celebrity-styled brand, and trueBrowns, a premium ethnic wear brand; both of which have grown ~10x since their partnership with G.O.A.T. Brand Labs. The addition of these 5 brands further strengthens its portfolio of fast growing Fashion & Lifestyle Brands. Having raised a round of USD 50 mn a few months back and backed by marquee investors - Tiger Global, Flipkart, Mayfield, Winter Capital, Nordstar, and Better Capital, G.O.A.T Brand Labs will continue to invest in these brands to make them leaders in their respective categories.
