Technology company ChannelEngine.com from Leiden has completed an investment round with Airbridge Equity Partners participating for 1.1 million. Rick van Boekel, who once celebrated bol.com in the Netherlands, is going to be a supervisory director.

The money is used to pre-finance the intended international growth. In addition, Airbridge (portfolio) brings along a number of experts that ChannelEngine thinks to benefit from upscaling its foreign activities.

"We're in a growth explosion, " says founder Jorrit Steinz. "Over the past year and a half, many interesting parties have come on board as customers. Think of Ahold for Gall & Gall, Bugaboo, V & D and Body & Fit. Dutch companies also like to sell abroad. With our technology we hook on foreign market places such as Amazon, Cdiscount, Wish. We do cover most European market places, although there are still fashion destinations in Germany. "

The newly collected money is used to attract many people in a short time. They help set up new customers and activate new markets. In Europe, for example, the eastern and northern markets are still on the road map. "And we go live for customers in the US and Canada with links to Amazon, eBay and Walmart."

ChannelEngine earns money as soon as webshops abroad start selling turnover through the linked market places. That is what it takes for a committee.
