Rentle is the Shopify of the Circular Economy - a white-label commerce platform that enables durable goods retailers to build profitable and sustainable offerings around the circular economy. This means offerings such as product subscriptions, rentals, and buyback-driven secondhand/refurbishment programs. With 14,000+ signed-up merchants and major players like Decathlon UK already onboard, Rentle is perfectly positioned to capture the enormous market opportunity presented by the expansion from a linear to a circular economy. Unlike existing commerce infrastructure, which is designed for linear sales and struggles to scale for circular models, Rentle is purpose-built to handle the unique demands of this paradigm shift.

Notable Achievements

  • Raised over USD$5 million to date. Investors include VCs from Nordics, UK and US.
  • 15,000+ signed up merchants as well as large retailers such as Decathlon UK.

Currently Operating in 52 Regions
