Faire has scored both a unicorn status and $150m in a massive Series D round

Curated wholesale marketplace Faire has achieved unicorn status after being valued over $1bn following a huge $150m funding round.

Venture capital firms Lightspeed Venture Partners and Founders Fund led the round.

Both Lightspeed Venture Partners and Founders Fund also led InsurTech and risk analytic startup Arceo.ai’s $37m round in September.

Faire’s new round was also supporete by Forerunner Ventures, YC Continuity and Khosla Ventures. Forerunner Ventures backed US mobile banking startup Chime’s $200m Series D round in March, which granted the company a unicorn valuation.

Faire is intending to use the money to scale its business, expand into new markets and sharpen its tools further
