invstr talks to Tradeshift at Davos 2017

by | Jan 24, 2017

invstr reporter and producer Lea Jakobiak caught up with Christian Lanng and Mikkel Hippe Brun, the Founders of Tradeshift – the cloud-based business network which aims to connect buyers and suppliers. The Tradeshift network currently supports 800,000 businesses in over 200 countries on the platform. In 2005, entrepreneurs Christian, Mikkel and Gert Sylvest had a vision: to connect every business in the world. So when the Danish National IT & Telecom Agency asked them to create an e-invoice network, they saw an opportunity to create something bigger. First, they built EasyTrade, the world’s first open-source trade platform. Then, the trio got to work again. This time, to realize their vision of an open business platform for the whole world, not just Europe. A platform that would transform the way businesses work together. From broken to efficient; from complicated to simple; from archaic to modern. Tradeshift was born.

In this interview in the picturesque Swiss alps during the World Economic Forum at Davos 2017, Christian and Mikkel explained why they think it is time to move on from Brexit. They also shared their thoughts on why China might be the most interesting market when it comes to growing their business platform.
