It is based on the vast experience of more than 100 global e-commerce projects created by Rocket Internet and Project A Ventures in Berlin.
Spryker’s technological roots – known as “Alice and Bob” and “Yves and Zed” – are Rocket Internet’s and Project A’s inhouse software solutions designed to meet the demands of ambitious and disruptive commerce projects. The requirements of such projects led to the creation of the internal software as there was no appropriate technology available in the market. In November 2014 Spryker was founded to offer the architecture to industry clients.
