CircleUp is proud to team up with Amazon for Amazon Launchpad, a recently launched, curated selection of “unexpected and fresh new products”.
We think this will be tremendously helpful for entrepreneurs on CircleUp. In addition to plugging into one of the largest ecommerce platforms on earth, companies get:
- A dedicated team support team and powerful digital tools to help brands tell their unique stories
- Instant, global distribution as Amazon Launchpad is available on 10 of its international portals at launch
- Massively scaled fulfillment capabilities
Small brands are gobbling up market share from large brands in nearly every major consumer and retail category. Millennials are voting with their wallets and opting for small, specialized and mission-driven brands, igniting a rapid transformation in consumer markets. Between 2009 and 2013 alone, big brands lost $14 billion in sales to small brands.
Consumer markets account for 20% of the U.S. economy, and we are seeing a dramatic shift. We call it the Personalization of Consumer… and believe it’s just getting started. And we’re proud to work with Amazon Launchpad to empower the entrepreneurs that will change the way we live our lives.
Note: CircleUp announced a similar partnership with eBay in December 2014.
