How Are We?

eBrands acquires and grows eCommerce brands that people will love. We create a home for brands that make the world feel better – by building brands that improve the physical, mental and environmental wellbeing of a billion people.

What Do We Do & Why?

Global market places, 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 on 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.,expanding to new marketplaces, and optimizing sourcing and advertising of these brands.

How Do We Do Things?

At eBrands, we embrace being a company with a high ambition to do things bigger, better, and faster, while balancing it with being highly focused on what matters. We think like pirates – we are brave, break out of traditional conventions and think creatively of solutions, while knowing we can rely on the team around us.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.
