Julia Beyer, CEO & Co-founder Suntribe AB

Suntribe was launched in 2016 and selling outside of Sweden was a part of our sales strategy from the beginning. We started by selling on Amazon, where we very quickly saw great results. We also started selling to resellers in the sports and natural cosmetics segment directly and got a few loyal customers, however, we found it very challenging to get in contact with more resellers because the German market is so competitive and the business rules are different. Consequently we focused on finding sales agents and distributors for the relevant segments, which helped us tremendously in increasing our sales.
