Rob van Gent, TFC founder and CEO of D2C Company: "Our mission is to help brands better respond to today's world, where consumers are closer than ever. For the most impactful marketing, we use new channels like marketplaces & influencers, who play a huge role in making brands and products famous and achieving growth."
Michiel Bestebroer, TFC founder and CEO of NextChapter eCommerce: "Within TFC we are also working on vertical (specialized) marketplaces where brands can sell their products better than through the general horizontal marketplaces. The regular 'webshop' for brands will mainly revolve around brand experience and first party data will become the most important driver of marketing."
Bart de Rijke, TFC founder and CEO of Supplime: "Many brands underestimate the complexity and costs of supply chains abroad and lose much of their margin due to inefficiency. We provide optimization, cost savings and scalability in cross-border fulfillment. You don't have to reinvent the wheel - we've got you covered!"
