Timo is founder and CEO of Vekoop – a shopping site for buying vegan food online. After nearly a decade of working in sales and distribution accounting for german and european markets, he finally decided to quit his job and enter the university at the end of his twenties, where he met his co-founder Sebastian in their masters program. In a startup-seminar they were challenged to bring up an idea for a startup, of course, and as a vegan for over 15 years now he knew about the difficulties to find the right products in the local food-stores – even without very innovative filter options for allergies and food intolerance. As the result vekoop was started in 2013 and is now aiming to gather a leading position for the best customer experience buying vegan food online – to support a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Vekoop promotes a lot of small social and sustainable food manufactures with listing and supporting their vegan products.
