OCKSÅ is now available in a bunch of stores across the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden. We’ve reached a lot of new customers, and word is spreading about our products. It’s so exciting seeing our very own, unique products standing in the coolest design stores, and in our customer’s homes and offices.
We’re really happy and proud we’ve made it this far! But we have big plans! We want OCKSÅ to be a brand name you immediately recognize and associate with Scandinavian design. We’re aiming to reach ALL the trendy homes, hotels, restaurants, offices and stores across Scandinavia and Benelux (for a start)! Which of course is a lot.
We also want to expand our range; bring in new fragrances and colours, and expand to a wide variety of products. We’ve got a lot of ideas, and of course there’s never enough time to do everything that we want to. They (take your pick of entrepreneurial gurus) say that keeping your day job as long as possible while getting a start-up going is one of the keys to success. So that’s what we’re going for. It definitely forces us to prioritise among our ideas to what is actually possible for two humans to accomplish.
Which is also why we are looking to incorporate another human into the team. Primarily to help us reach out to the Swedish market and match (or maybe even exceed) our growth in the Dutch market. We’ve already been in touch with some really great people, but we’re always open to meeting more. There are so many ways to collaborate and work together – so if you feel a click with OCKSÅ, then please reach out to us! We’d love to hear from you!
