Vev, The Simplest Way to Start A Business, Brings Its Simple Tools to the US & Introduces Premium Subscription Service

UTRECHT – February 1, 2024 – Vev, the easiest way to start your own business, is now bringing its simple tools to the US for the first time. The Dutch startup is also introducing a new premium subscription service, Vev+, with richer tools for budding entrepreneurs as well as turning on the ability to accept payments. Vev is available as a web app on mobile or desktop and as a native app on the iOS App Store.

Vev helps aspiring entrepreneurs, or those with a special talent, start their own business within a few simple steps, and begin accepting orders or making bookings within minutes. It is an all-in-one tool to sell any product or service.

Vev features 200 pre-built business templates (as well as the ability to customize from scratch), with features unique to each, easy prompts and tools for customization, a simple calendar and booking tool, a dashboard to manage sales, a delivery/order tracker, and integration with the maps, reminders and notifications features on devices. Business owners also get a simple URL and QR code to share with friends or use for promotion.

Close to 20K businesses have already been set up in Europe and across Latin America, and these businesses have made hundreds of thousands of bookings (or processed orders) and made millions in new revenue – as full time work or as a side gig.

Vev was created by the team that founded Prss, a simple set of tools that allowed anyone to publish a magazine on iPad. Prss was acquired by Apple in 2014 to help build out the Apple News platform, and is now back with a similar mission to democratize and simplify business setup and management.
