About the Project

In August 2018, the team’s dedicated developers began building on the first commission-based influencer portal in Denmark and launched it in January 2019. Within the first 12 months the platform had completed +400 campaigns, generated +1,000,000 clicks and +32,000 conversions.
We have more than 90 brands that we’re currently working with and have 950+ influencers on the platform. We’re now looking to scale the platforms features and prepare it for international use.
