It took three long years for the investor Jesper Buch and the team behind the app Reshopper to finally agree on cooperation, reports TrendsOnline. Timing, patience and the belief that both sides can help each other were the ingredients that made this agreement possible.
”Reshopper has created an impressive product. Very few Danish apps have been both the Editor’s Choice at Apple and appeared on the Apple’s top 10 list of best apps. It is an achievement in itself, but I feel that there is much more to come ”, says Jesper Buch.
Long Way to Cooperation
Reshopper is an app that allows its users to buy and sell used children’s items. The first time the apps founders met Jesper Buch three years ago during an entrepreneurial event at Aarhus.
“It was the time when we tested the elevator pitch. Perhaps we could have prepared better for the event, however we managed to interest him a bit with our project”, says COO and co-founder of Reshopper, Nicolai Danmark Johannesen.
After some time when Reshopper team found out that Jesper Buch started investing Gomore – car sharing concept, they became even more excited in exploring possibilities for cooperation. The reason of the growing interest aroused from the fact that Gomore was based on the same values as Reshopper. Nicolai Danmark Johannesen and other co-founders met with Jesper Buch one summer day in 2014. During the meeting they outlined the common opportunities, but they could not reach the agreement at that time. However, in late 2016 Reshopper team again contacted Jesper Buch and finally they have agreed on cooperation.
High Hopes for the Future
Nicolai Danmark Johannesen holds high hopes for the future of Reshopper with Jesper Buch on board. And he is glad to give advice to other young entrepreneurs:
”Make sure to preserve and nurture relationships. People, who have invested in us, were those who have known us for a long time, so it is important to take care of your relationships. Just because you get a ‘no’ now, it does not mean that it is a ‘no’ forever. ”says Nicolai Danmark Johannese
