Whoppah was founded in 2019 by Thomas Bunnik and Evelien Bunnik-Remmelts. Yes, you read that correctly - they are married! With their platform for pre-owned design and interior items, they are focusing on building a sustainable future. With their HQ in Utrecht, Netherlands, Whoppah is expanding; last year they experienced 800% growth!

In July 2022, Whoppah was 1 of the 10 startup finalists in the KPMG Dutch Tech Innovator competition. During this event, Thomas shared Whoppah’s journey so far, their growth ambitions and how the platform supports a sustainable future. The competition was tough, but with their inspiring story and great performance, Whoppah was crowned as the well-deserved winner, meaning that they will go on to represent the Netherlands in the KPMG Global Tech Innovator competition, held during the Web Summit in Lisbon in early November. Here, they will compete against 22 other startups that were selected by other KPMG firms from all over the world. Wish them luck!

We – the KPMG Emerging Giants team - love to work with startups like Whoppah for their energized, hands-on and think-big mentality. That’s why we built a dedicated team of experts that focuses on supporting startups in their (international) growth. With Whoppah, we’re supporting them with their expansion to Germany and the challenges they face in this process, including Tax, GDPR and how to scale the organization.
