Wie zijn wij?
Who we are:
Bloomon is turning the flower industry on its head – for the better. How? By disrupting the traditional supply chain, where most florists operate offline and have done for decades. Bloomon creates seasonal collections using unusual stems to deliver unique flower arrangements on repeat. We always use field-fresh high-quality flowers straight from the grower and deliver to our customers through a high-tech and highly creative platform. Our e-commerce company launched in Amsterdam in 2014 and went from start-up to scale-up at hypersonic speed. We are already active in six countries: the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, UK, Denmark and France. Next step? To conquer Europe... and then the world. Our goal? To become the first global flower brand in the lifestyle segment, filling hearts and homes with happiness. One bouquet at a time.
We drive the growth of bloomon and its expansion in Europe. By finding new and smarter ways to grow our customer base at speed. We combine our creative skills and business knowy piloting exciting initiatives from ideation to execution. Think: global partnerships, media relations, influencer marketing, magazine collaborations, pop-up shops, etc. We put our lessons learnt into improving and optimising every day. So we can sell flowers like a boss!
