Sagoon is an early stage social commerce platform founded by Govinda Giri in the basement of his home in Washington DC, USA.
The word ‘Sagoon’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘ Shakuna’ meaning an auspicious moment or “good luck.”
Sagoon was founded by Nepalese American IT engineer “Govinda Giri” of Pentagon and IBM in 2009, but he faced a difficult capital environment, and after 14 months of trial and error, he had to shut down his search engine.
In September 2013, he quit his job and started working full-time from the basement of his home. Soon he associated himself with an experienced graphic designer Swati Dayal who began working part-time for Sagoon.
Giri spent eight months on market research and analysis of users’ behavior and then rolled out Sagoon as a Social Commerce Site. Its private beta was launched in Washington DC by Manisha Koirala.
Giri introduced Sagoon Version 2.0 in November 2015; it was launched by Nepal PM K. P. Sharma Oli on November 8, 2015, in Kathmandu, Nepal.
