We Help Software Companies Succeed
We’re early in our journey but making good progress: Deloitte Fast 50 named us the fastest growing software company in the UK (we’ve tripled revenue every year since our launch in 2012), and we’ve raised over $25m in funding from incredible investors such as Notion, BGF and Kindred.

Christian founds Paddle from his bedroom in Corby, United Kingdom (the glamour!), he is 18, and this is his third business. As a software and app developer he encountered the frustrations of selling software globally and decided to do something about it. It’s fair to say that he’s a bit of an Apple fanboy.
A mighty team of two, Christian and Harrison head to London having received seed funding from Mark Pearson (founder of MyVoucherCodes).
Angel investment from Mark Evans (partner at Kindred Capital).
