Brink Commerce, that’s us

Brink Commerce is a young company based in Stockholm, with offices in Gothenburg, Germany and Marbella. The company was founded by commerce, tech, and cloud entrepreneurs Kristian Tysander, Patrik Antonsson, and Marcus Ljungberg in 2018. Our product, Brink Commerce API, was developed based on their real-world experience from companies like Daniel Wellington, Klarna, and H&M to solve the challenges that hyper-growth D2C brands and global companies face today (and tomorrow). Brink Commerce is API-only, built on principles that enable customers to handle huge volumes of traffic and orders. And on top of that we provide flexibility and scalability that you have never seen before. It’s all very techy and cool, and we’d love to tell you more about it.

Brink Commerce is in a strong scale-up phase, backed by some of the most reputable investors in the Nordics like Jarno Vanhatapio (Nelly, NA-KD), Alexander Hars (Let’s deal, Desenio), Albin Johansson (Axel Arigato), Filip Tysander (Daniel Wellington) and well-known investment companies Wellstreet (Swe) and Innovation Nest (PL). The company’s commercial management includes profiles from eCommerce and fintech such as Christian Zanders (founder and former CEO of Jetshop) and Mattias Ekman (several leading commercial positions at Klarna).
