Our story so far
The Veeqo journey is just beginning – but look how far we’ve come already.
And so it begins...
Retailer Matt Warren starts building Veeqo from his home in Swansea, South Wales. He also begins raising investment via crowdfunding, becoming the first Welsh company to do so.
Veeqo beta version released
Veeqo is released to a small handful of customers in beta mode. It integrates with Shopify, Amazon and Royal Mail, giving ecommerce retailers the ability to manage their inventory and orders across multiple channels from a single, cloud-based platform.
Veeqo is launched to the world, and officially out of beta – complete with a new eBay integration. $670k is raised through crowdfunding and the first full-time Veeqo employees are hired.
$1m seed funding raised
Veeqo raises $1m of seed funding from retail magnate and founder of UK retail chain New Look, Tom Singh.
Product listing and iPhone app live
Veeqo gets its next major update – a brand new listing tool, allowing retailers to easily sell multichannel. Also released is an iPhone app that offers reporting, stock taking and barcode scanning capabilities, all designed to help retailers save time.
Shipping firm ParcelBright acquired
Veeqo acquires London-based shipping startup ParcelBright. Veeqo customers in the UK can now easily ship internationally, and are also offered discounted shipping rates and tracking facilities – all within a single platform.
£1.2m raised through crowdfunding
Veeqo raises £1.2m on the crowdfunding platform Seedrs, at a company valuation of £8m. The investment is used to improve the Veeqo software, and expand the team – with new roles created across engineering, marketing, sales and support.
Welsh Goverment invests into Veeqo
Veeqo is granted an investment of £500k by the Welsh Government, with a commitment to create another 170 jobs in the business over the next three years
Veeqo Marketplace is born
