Why make Tictail?

The short story: because selling online should be simple, free and fun!

Tictail launched in May 2012 with the purpose of helping anyone who had a great product, to easily sell online. We want indie brands and retailers to be able to do this in a way that helps build their brand, and makes them proud of their online store. Today there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be selling your creations or curated products to people all around the world!

Therefore, through Tictail we think we have created the easiest way to start an online store. But that's not enough, it’s also drop dead gorgeous, you can customize the look of your store anyway you want, and the best part is it’s free. Yepp. Free. It’s easy to set up, you don’t need any developer knowledge to make it look amazing, and we will help you to get the word out there. Hopefully, along the way we'll discover tomorrow's greatest retailers!

Entrepreneur of the Year

There are four Tictail founders: Carl, Kaj, Birk and Siavash. We've all been fortunate enough to always have creative people around us. People that are so passionate about something, even though it was never the safe path, it was still the path they chose. Supporting people like them is a big motivator for all of us at Tictail.

Like a lot of good stories start, we found each other through random events. Carl and Kaj met in high school and a joint interest in both design and web technologies led the two friends to found Super Strikers - a small agency focusing on digital media - a year after graduation. In 2007 they started working with a small, yet to be launched Swedish startup called Spotify, whom they developed the brand identity for. The agency needed to grow and during a recruitment process Carl first met Birk, who politely declined the job offer.

In 2009 Super Strikers was acquired by brand development agency Identity Works, where Carl & Kaj worked as an Art Director team and led the digital department creative team. After two years there they knew it was time for Tictail, and this time managed to convince Birk, who at the time was at Stardoll, to come along for the ride.

Siavash found Tictail while working at Blocket.se. Impressed by the website he started looking into the code and found a hidden message, welcoming anyone who found it to contact the team (to be honest we’d forgotten we’d put it there!). After a few beers together we knew we’d found the fourth founder.

Today we're a team of ten eighteen people, and we all get to do something we love every day. We're motivated by great stories from Tictailers, who are finally getting their products out there, and because of that, can make even more great products. Today there are Tictails in 98 countries, and it just keeps growing!
