Scoopon

Scoopon has helped over 2 million Australian’s live life for less, with amazing daily deals on lifestyle experiences and products.

Founded by brothers Gabby and Hezi Leibovich in 2010, Scoopon is part of the Catch Group, which includes Australia’s number 1 online department store, catchoftheday.com.au, grocery site groceryrun.com.au, an online shopping destination for mums and their families with mumgo.com.au, and food ordering and delivery service Eatnow.com.au.

In June 2011 the group received $80 million in funding from a consortium of investors comprising James Packer’s Consolidated Press Holdings, international investment firm Tiger Global and Andrew Basset from Seek, cementing its position as the leading ecommerce group in Australia.

With a combined subscriber base of over 3.5 million members, the group regularly receives over one million Australian visitors in a day (24 hour period), and receives on average one order every 1 second.

Scoopon and its related business are headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, and employ over 300 people.
