Who are we?

eBrands acquires, operates, and scales small to medium-sized Amazon brands. We aim for global category-winning products that are both durable and sustainable. We are well-funded, backed by Icebreaker.vc and prominent start-up founders.

 

What do we do and why? 

The global marketplaces, such as Amazon and Alibaba have become the new standard for consumer retail. In 2020, over $300Bn worth of goods were sold through Amazon in the US alone. 

In addition to the traditional large consumer brands, these marketplaces have enabled an explosive growth of “garage brands” in global markets. Often these smaller brands have been started as a hobby or to provide a secondary income for entrepreneurial individuals. As Amazon and other marketplaces have enabled a global customer base and 3rd party seller shipping and storage services for these small players, many of them have grown well beyond what has traditionally been possible for small businesses (+$500k revenue, +20% EBITDA). In 2021 the total revenue from 3rd party sellers in Amazon is expected to exceed $270 Bn. 

eBrands has been established in 2020 to identify, purchase and manage great brands among these 3rd party sellers. eBrands will develop the purchased businesses by e.g., consolidating, and optimizing sourcing and advertising of these brands. 

 

How do we do things? 

In eBrands, we embrace being a company with high ambition to do things bigger, better and faster, while balancing it with being highly focused on what matters. Anyone in eBrands can talk to anyone else about how to best solve the problem – and that’s how we want to keep it as we grow. If we need to make mistakes, we rather make them fast and learn. We all drive to make the company a success. 

And we want to have fun while doing it.


Who can you talk to?
