Jeremy Liew, who was propelled into the top echelon of US startup investors earlier this year when his early bet on Snapchat paid off spectacularly, told Fairfax Media over coffee in San Francisco this week that Jeff Bezos’ $US500 billion ($628 billion) plus e-commerce giant should not be seen as invincible.

“The narrative of you can’t compete with Amazon, it just looks like it is wrong,” he said.

His comment comes as Amazon prepares to finally launch an online retail offering in , as soon as this month. The Seattle-based internet conglomerate, which has had a presence in via its web services business for years, is holding a seller summit in Sydney next Monday.

Despite Amazon’s perceived dominance of online retail, Liew points out that in recent years there have been a string of successful e-commerce companies in the US and Europe that have either listed on stockmarkets or been acquired for billion-dollar prices.

These include Chewy, a petfood delivery firm acquired by brick and mortar rival PetSmart for $US3.5 billion, subscription razor blade business DollarShave, which was acquired by Unilever for $US1 billion, and Zalando, a German online electronics retailer whose market cap has nearly doubled since listing.
