The Tradeshift story

So three Danes walk into a meeting...

It began with a dream.

In 2005, entrepreneurs Christian, Mikkel and Gert 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.* (Did they blow a few minds and break some rules along the way? You bet they did.)

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.

And so, Tradeshift was born.

*95% of Danish businesses still use it today.

Bigger team.
Same vision.

Tradeshift has grown to 200+ people with offices in 7 countries, but our focus hasn’t wavered. We still make business software that’s efficient, simple to use and built for change. We embody the same values we’ve had from the beginning.

We believe in:
  • Creating value over maximizing profit
  • Collaborating over micro-management
  • Sharing knowledge over siloed thinking
  • Empowering individuals over bureaucracy

We're going to need a bigger shelf.
