Our new EU office open for business

November 2019

The nights are drawing in, golden leaves are filling the cobbled streets, you can almost smell the oaky scent of log fires, but don’t think for one second that means anything is slowing down… here at People-Made, something big is brewing!

You may have guessed, and it’s a yes — we’re super excited to announce our doors are officially open for business in the world-famous city of Amsterdam! And we’re raring to go. So why Amsterdam? A city of remarkable history and culture, the golden age canals, great work-life balance, high standards in education, family life, the hidden treasures and fascinating sights … the list goes on! 

Yet most importantly, it’s a great place to do business with our European clients. It really is becoming a global creative hub and there’s an array of exciting new brands launching in all kinds of industries. We’ll be sharing with you our new discoveries, but for now we’ve compiled a list of our top five new favourite brands born in the wonderful Amsterdam. 

Quicargo

Founded in 2016, Quicargo is an online platform that connects empty trucks to any business that needs transportation in real time, using a pricing and matching algorithm. Quicargo gives shippers access to the most reliable carriers in the Netherlands while reducing empty journeys, CO2 emissions, time and energy! Shipping pallets really has never been so easy, efficient and sustainable.

Crisp

This first and one of a kind app-only supermarket delivery, focuses on quality food from more than 200 local producers. Crisp is on a mission to make better quality food available to more people with its app, making sure your food is delivered the next day, six days a week.

Patta

We love Patta – driven by love and necessity rather than profit and novelty – situated right in the heart of the city, Patta has brought a new excitement to the Dutch streetwear scene. The brand’s passion for art, music and sport, gleams through its unique approach to design, as the collections deliver an effortless style.

Fairphone

Launched in 2013, Fairphone creates demand for fairer products, aiming to change the way products are made. The phone that cares for people and planet is making a positive impact across the value chain in mining, design, manufacturing and life cycle, while expanding the market for products that put ethical values first. 

Woov

How many of you have gone to a festival and wasted hours trying to find your friends in the crowds? Woov is the new festival companion app, that eliminates this problem! It’s designed to help festivals lovers navigate the festival site, locate their friends real-time and check out who is playing at which stage – we think it could definitely be a game changer!
