Droppe – One-stop shop for all your wholesale

Connecting local businesses to Europe's top equipment manufacturers via an online wholesale marketplace. ——— Founded in 2020 in Finland, Droppe is building an online marketplace that brings European industrial equipment manufacturers and industrial buyers together. Currently, the top concern for industrial buyers is finding and stocking operating supplies that are painless to buy in bulk, low in cost and responsibly sourced. Industrial buyers can now bulk order products for food manufacturing and industrial manufacturing ranging from hairnets to aprons and protective gloves through Droppe’s online platform. Ultimately Droppe makes the European wholesale industry more connected by creating shorter and more responsible supply chains, as companies can look for local wholesale marketplaces from Europe instead of other continents. The company's easy-to-use online marketplace is already used by some of the biggest industrial key players and publicly listed companies in Europe. “As industrial wholesale moves online, more and more industrial buyers will be looking for new ways to bulk order products via the internet. Droppe is the first in the market to build a European industrial wholesale marketplace, a mission that we are excited to continue building and expanding with new resources,” Johannes Salmisaari, the CEO and Co-founder of Droppe, explains. “Our vision is to create a trustworthy community of European buyers and manufacturers and through that, build a stronger European wholesale market.” In just under two years, Droppe has reached a GMV of over €4M and over 500 customers from SMEs to publicly listed companies, bootstrapped. In early 2022, Droppe raised a venture round backed by Lifeline Ventures, Ilkka Paananen (CEO & Co-founder of Supercell) and Miki Kuusi (CEO & Co-founder of Wolt). “Droppe’s online marketplace streamlines the buying process and makes it easier for industrial buyers. Buyers are now able to order directly from multiple manufacturers across Europe at the same time, all on one invoice–something that the industry hasn't seen before,” tells Henrik Helenius, Co-founder of Droppe. “According to Gartner by 2025, 80% of B2B sales interactions between suppliers and buyers will occur in digital channels, such as online marketplaces. Droppe is tapping into this worldwide shift to industrial online marketplaces with their online platform, showing an exceptional promise to do so with their strong growth numbers. As an investor, it is quite rare to see such a well-oiled machine at this stage,” Timo Ahopelto, the Founding Partner at Lifeline Ventures, tells.
