Weecos, an online sustainable marketplace and ready to scale globally with the vastest range of sustainable products in the Nordic countries, is now seeking a maximum amount of €300,000 through its equity crowdfunding round on Invesdor. Founded in 2012, Weecos claims to be the first marketplace in Finland and other Nordic countries focusing just on sustainable design and independent brands.
“Our vision is that within five years, Weecos is the digital home of the global Weecos tribe who want to be game changers and are looking for an inspirational, sustainable lifestyle. We believe in the power of community, reliability and transparency in everything we do.”
Weecos’ mission is to do the following:
- To be the counterforce for disposable shopping culture
- Unite sustainable designers and brands with conscious minds and encourage people to make purchase decisions easily according to their values
- To affect society and the environment positively, not exploit the planet
- Create a more sustainable future together with inspirational design brands
The company also stated:
“As an online marketplace, our business model works very differently compared to a traditional webstore as there is no storage in Weecos. Each brand maintains their own Weecos-shop and the customer can buy several products from various brands at the same time. After placing the order, the payment is automatically divided between the different brands and the brands send the orders to the customers from their storages themselves.”
Funds from the Invesdor round will be used to expand and grow the Weecos’ platform. Since launching, the campaign has secured nearly €140,000. It is set to close at the end of January.
