Philipp Klöckner about TradeMachines: 

"As an angel investor and online marketing consultant, I have already helped many start-ups and growth companies. After meeting the TradeMachines team for the first time, I decided to join them as an investor and advisor. TradeMachines is focusing on one of the largest B2B markets worldwide and, as a meta search engine, will shape the digitization of this fast-growing market for industrial machines. Over the last few years, I have worked with six of the approx. 100 ‘unicorns,’ that is, start-ups valued at more than €1 billion. TradeMachines has the vision and the potential to become the global market leader in a €300 billion market and to join the small group of ‘unicorns.’ As an investor, you may support TradeMachines during this exciting journey."
