About the investor

Why do I invest in Runnics?

Ismael El-Qudsi | Notable investor

Runnics fulfils the Company profile in which we are interested to invest.

On the one hand, it belongs to the ecommerce sector. We do think it is a sector with great potential growth especially in Spain. Our country is one fourth of other European Markets like France or Germany.

At the same time it is a marketplace, what makes the company more attractive to us. In our opinion the future of ecommerce lies on the marketplace model. Companies based on offer aggregation in many different sectors like Airbnb, Booking and of course Alibaba or Amazon constitute a clear example.

We also believe that you have to work in a niche, be specialized in order to be successful. The world of not professional sports linked with fashion it is very innovative and different and we think it is perfectly applicable to any given geography.

The management team and particularly his CEO, Eduardo Berrocal is very important for us. He was pioneer in the ecommerce sector in Spain opening a successful online DVD store in 1999. It was one of the first success stories of the ecommerce in Spain. Berrocal has also achieved to gather an impressive group of shareholders coming from other successful internet and ecommerce businesses.

At Internet República, our main Company and investor vehicle we are particularly interested in investing in companies where we can provide something else than capital. The fact that Runnics is based on an organic model growth and that our agency is focused in SEO makes a very complementary match to be part of the company.
