Artfinder in the news: British tech startups on track to become billion dollar companies

by Jane Verity

Artfinder has been included in Silicon Valley Comes to the UK's 'Scale Up Club' - a list of British startups which could hit £100m in revenue in the next three to five years.

The companies were selected on the basis of their year-on-year growth rate for the past three years. The list also includes Skyscanner, TransferWise and BorrowMyDoggy.

Jonas Almgren, CEO of Artfinder comments:

"We're delighted to be included in Silicon Valley Comes to the UK's 'Scale Up Club.' Since we launched our marketplace in 2013 we have been keen to articulate that Artfinder has more in common with ‘share economy’ businesses such as AirBnB and Etsy than it does with ‘traditional’ art businesses who have moved into the online space. We’re proud to only sell one-of-a-kind original art and we’re also proud not to discriminate amongst our artists based on whether or not the art establishment has heard of them. We put the relationships that our artists build with our customers first. We are redefining what ‘buying art’ means and the ‘sharing economy’ generation is really responding to that."
