Online Diamond and Jewellery Company - ZCOVA, Raises RM1 Million in Seed Funding Led by NEXEA



Kuala Lumpur, Sep 29, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - NEXEA Angels Sdn Bhd (NEXEA), a Malaysian Venture Capital firm, has just closed a funding round of RM 1Million for ZCOVA, a fast-growing jewellery and diamond company. The financing will be used to fund the expansion of the business as well as on all efforts to modernise the way diamonds and gemstones are purchased via online-retail.

Founded in 2015, ZCOVA is reshaping the jewellery shopping experience as the only company in Malaysia and Singapore that offers dual-certified (GIA & GemEx) diamonds at a near-wholesale price to the burgeoning gem-market through its online store. ZCOVA aims to provide a transparent transaction chain through the removal of middlemen in the diamond industry supply chain. The firm's in-house jewellery consultants work on a zero-commission policy, which enables them to focus directly on customer needs and interests - placing the customer above all else in their quest to find unique gems that suit their patrons best.

"We see a very strong team within ZCOVA and that gives us a lot of confidence in the company's growth ahead. On top of that, we also see an excellent exit opportunity for both us and ZCOVA. NEXEA believes that ZCOVA is on the right path to disrupt the traditional diamond market. When customers no longer see the reason to pay a premium for the same diamond they can get on ZCOVA's platform - brick and mortar stores will soon meet their obsolescence." - Ben Lim, Managing Partner, Nexea Angels.

ZCOVA's revenues saw an increase of 30% in the month of June coming out strong on the tail-end of the MCO as compared to pre-MCO. Moreover, the firm is looking at strong Y-O-Y growth for FY21&22 as they expand their operations to Singapore, vying for a top spot at the growing south-east Asian financial hub.

"As we are approaching a new era of technological convenience, shoppers are making more convenient purchases online. We've seen very positive outcomes not only from Malaysians, but also from the neighbouring countries such as Singapore, Brunei, and other countries across Southeast Asia. Being the only company that certifies diamonds under GemEx Certificate in Singapore and Malaysia, ZCOVA can assure in bringing straight forward information and quality assurance to SEA shoppers. With our experience and competitive advantage, we believe shoppers will be more inclined to seek our exceptional services." - Ziwei, Co-Founder, ZCOVA.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Oct 21, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Tiger quadruplets in Berlin zoo treated for knee problems

Oct 21, 2020

BERLIN — A Berlin zoo says four young Sumatran tigers are undergoing treatment for knee problems. The quadruplets were born in the summer of 2018 and as they started to develop, zookeepers noticed abnormalities in the way the cubs ran, the Tierpark Berlin said Wednesday. CT scans revealed all four tigers had knee misalignments that were causing cartilage damage. That damage is now being treated, and an expert team is to sit down in the new year to discuss long-term strategies to help the tigers. “We don't want to just rely on our own judgement. We will sit down with...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Oct 21, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Oct 21, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Oct 21, 2020

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
