ROTTERDAM - Monday Merch raises half a million in growth funding from Rabobank shortly after its founding. The Rotterdam start-up helps companies with all aspects of organizing sustainable and high-quality merchandise for employees, a time-consuming process that requires a lot of specific knowledge. Monday Merch addresses that need by organizing the entire process, from design and production to storage and distribution, in one central location. The investment will be used to expand the team, gain greater international exposure and roll out a merchandise platform.

The founders of WoodWatch, who previously made it to Forbes 30 under 30 and won a spot in the Financial Times Top 1000 of Europe's fastest-growing companies, have experienced firsthand how difficult it is to get high quality merch into the hands of employees. That's why last year they launched Monday Merch: one place to organize all your merch for your company. The founders are determined: Monday Merch is going to grow hard and fast because of its unique proposition.
No more spending endless hours organizing merch
It is a recognizable situation for companies looking for merchandise: spending endless hours comparing products and suppliers. Not to mention the tangle of printing methods, delivery files and customs forms when shipping internationally. ''We have experienced firsthand how difficult it is to organize merch. Spending countless hours finding great products, ordering everything from different places and then going to pack and take it to the post office ourselves. We thought: this can and should be better. Out of this need Monday Merch was born. Sustainable, high quality merch, that comes from 1 place in beautiful packages to your office or employees.'' says Kevin van der Veer.
With Monday Merch, companies only have to worry about choosing products, the rest is done by Monday Merch. For example, the company also offers storage in their warehouse and ships packages to (international) customers and employees when needed.
