Official Go-Live, geographical expansion and a new advisory board
Exactly 6 months ago on the 5th of November 2018, CheMondis launched its brand-new B2B marketplace, starting off in a public beta version. Half a year later we are proud to look back – and excited to take the next step.
In the meantime, more than 500 companies have registered and are using CheMondis to digitize their sales, marketing, and procurement. Already today we are proud to be the largest marketplace network for the chemical industry in Europe.
Our network continues to grow, product listings are increasing every day and the marketplace itself is evolving in terms of features. This is the perfect time to take the next step. We are very excited to announce three major adjustments.
1. We are officially live.
As of today, we are leaving our beta phase and we are officially live. Every company with a valid VAT/GST number and a legitimate interest in buying or selling chemicals can register. We will continue to validate every Registration single-handedly to assure that the high level of trust between market participants can grow further.
2. We expand globally.
With the end of our public beta phase, we are ready to take the next step in terms of growth. During the past couple of months, we had to decline a lot of requests from companies in Australia, South-East-Asia, or South America to join CheMondis.
Now we are happy to announce that we are opening the CheMondis platform to new markets, around the world.
3. We have a new advisory board.
We want to continue to learn from the best and most experienced experts of both the chemical industry and the tech world. This is why we established a new advisory board with industry experts helping us to take the next steps successfully. Our advisory board will comprise three industry leaders with very diverse backgrounds:
Marc Stilke, Business Angel and Venture Partner
