About Our Growth

HelloSpecial launched in May 2017 and has since grown rapidly and is now settling into a nice 10-20% monthly growth rate. With the current burn rate HelloSpecial aims to break even well within the first year of its existence. Current retention rates show users doing an average of 3 purchases per month. With that promising outlook a European expansion will offer a massive scale up for the business.

In the future

HelloSpecial is on track to become the European miniature auction platform that connects sellers to buyers at a lightning fast pace. On the short term we plan to expand to France, Spain and Germany and to create a self service platform for our suppliers and sellers to offer their goods. Meanwhile developing and iterating our selling algorithms to automate offering the right product to the right person at the right time.
