New in the world of Optimizer

Optimizer Invest Successfully Exits Reve After 6 Years in the Portfolio
  • After six years as investors, board members and operational support in Reve, Optimizer along with all the other shareholders will sell its shares to Tipser, a strategic acquirer that will take the company to the next level.
  • Distributed commerce company Tipser has operations in the Nordics, Germany and France with a client portfolio including media giants such as Bonnier, Bauer, Hubert Burda Media, and Schibsted.
  • Reve’s B2B platform, Reach, allows merchants to sell their inventory directly to customers, without integrations, in channels such as Instagram, Google, price comparison sites, content articles, video, voice assistants, advertisements and marketplaces.
  • The acquisition of Reve will complement and strengthen Tipser’s team and product portfolio allowing their clients to increase the monetization of their online properties.

Optimizer invested in Reve in 2014, at the time a small, but promising, smart shopping app working to bring transparency and convenience in online shopping. Led by founder Josep Nolla and supported by Optimizer the product has pivoted over these six years to a B2B platform shortening the sales funnel for brands and retailers.

Reve’s unique platform allows brands and retailers to sell anywhere by placing their inventory and enabling transactions directly in third-party channels e.g. Instagram marketplace, in-store apps and the Google assistant.

Optimizer has actively been supporting the company and its founder to grow and reach profitability. Reve is now ready to take the next step with this strategic acquirer that will help further develop the company and product in a new domain full of synergies.

Josep Nolla, co-founder of Reve comments on the deal:

Reve has been a fantastic journey during these years. We started with a consumer-facing online marketplace but has since then shifted to a B2B model based on our unique technology. The combination of our model and technology with Tipser’s solid network of partners will allow us to grow much faster in the future. Merchants can finally sell their products wherever the consumer interest arise in a friction-free way and without integrations. We are really excited about this mutual opportunity together with Tipser’s team.

Petter Moldenius, CEO Optimizer Invest:

“The six years of Reve being a portfolio company has been exciting, we have been working closely with Josep and Reve both operationally and on a board level. We have seen the team and product improve and develop, always working towards a better shopping experience. Today they have a tech platform that allow brands and retailers to be present and convert sales at the point of interest. Tipser will give Reve the opportunity to accelerate growth and reach the next level.”
