Packmatic is a Berlin startup aiming to change the disruption-ripe packaging industry for the better, replacing manual processes with state-of-the-art tech and enabling buyers to make more efficient and sustainable choices.
Be part of our unicorn story right from the start: Built by experienced founders Jonas, Matthias and Paul (i.e. co-founder Audibene (🦄), co-founder Ivy & Oak, JPM, Y-Combinator) and packaging experts (AMCOR, Wrigley), tech plays a major role for our vision from day one, as we are building the go-to B2B platform and SaaS collaboration tool for the packaging industry.
What we’re building: At its core, we’re building a webapp that connects different players in the packaging industry. The technical complexity of what we’re building originates from different requirements, such as the importance of data analytics for our business model and to empower our packaging experts, integrations with our partner’s systems, the need for security, compliance, and compatibility, and to some extent also scalability.
