Trell co-founder, Pulkit Agrawal, stated that the company is expanding faster than any other in this business sphere. Trell’s subscriber count increased 4x more than initially estimated. Agrawal further added that the company is planning to expand its product offerings to include mom & baby care, home care, and apparel soon.

Trell reported 50 million active users recently while 18 million content creators have posted content on the social media platform. The Bengaluru-based company has fulfilled 1 million orders till date, with an average order value of INR 750-800.
