Ankorstore change la façon dont les grossistes indépendants font des affaires. Sa mission est de promouvoir le développement et la croissance des détaillants locaux et authentiques et aider les marques européennes à élargir leur clientèle.

Ankorstore est le partenaire de plus de 100 000 détaillants à travers l’Europe - à la recherche de produits et de marques authentiques que les géants du commerce électronique comme Amazon ne proposent pas. La marketplace Ankorstore propose un catalogue de produits de plus de 10 000 marques européennes aux détaillants qui souhaitent offrir à leurs clients une expérience d’achat différenciée et de nouveaux produits. L’activité d’Ankorstore à travers l’Europe a triplé au cours des quatre premiers mois de 2021, malgré la fermeture des portes de la moitié des détaillants affiliés à Ankorstore pendant les lockdowns.

En moins d’un an et demi, Ankorstore est présent dans plus de 23 pays en Europe et possède des bureaux en France, en Allemagne, au Royaume-Uni, aux Pays-Bas et en Suède.

Ankorstore, qui fait partie de la célèbre FrenchTech 120, s’affirme comme un levier de croissance innovant pour le secteur du retail avec trois levées de fonds en moins de deux ans : 6 millions d’euros en décembre 2019, 25 millions en décembre 2020 et 84 millions en mai 2021.
