Brikl, a Leuven, Belgium-based end-to-end 3D design and ecommerce software platform, secured $2.4m in growth funding.
Saffelberg Investments provided the funding.
The company intends to use the funds to enhance its suite of software products aimed at the sports and team wear industry and expand into packaging and consumer goods sectors.
Founded in 2017 by Maarten Boone, Tobias Meixner and Jason Reinhardt, Brikl is a hybrid platform that combines design software, on-demand production and ecommerce. Using a point & click interface, custom designs can be created for any complex 3D form imaginable. Packaging, clothing, housewares, or other physical shapes can be decorated with colors, graphics, artwork, text, logo and images. Once finalized, designs are exported as print-ready files. Users also have the ability to quickly set up online microsites to sell their unique creations.
Brikl’s current clients include numerous top-tier sportswear brands such as Zoot Sports and Garneau, two global leaders in endurance sports; Eliel and Wattie Ink, two of the most popular triathlon and cycling apparel brands in the United States; Warrix, a leading sportswear brand in Thailand; and Vermarc Sport, a European-based cycling and triathlon team wear company.
The company employs people in offices in Belgium, the United States, Thailand, Germany and Mexico.
