Norwegian entrepreneurs Oyvind Slenter and David Reme founded Goodbid in 2013. Before Goodbid, Oyvind worked in the music industry, and with his local church—where he quickly developed a passion for helping ministries.
While cleaning out his garage, Oyvind had his “aha! moment” when he discovered that he had several unwanted items lying around that could go to good use. Passionate about helping his local church, he thought that it would be ideal if he could not only sell his items, but also have part of the sale price go to the church ministry. Unlike typical online marketplaces, he wanted his sales to make an impact for his church and community.
That’s when he envisioned Goodbid: An online tool where sales have a triple benefit: people get rid of unwanted items, the items go to good use, and the sales help support organizations and ministries. A simple and easy platform where you feel secure knowing every sale makes an impact for good!
Oyvind shared his vision with David, who instantly believed in the idea and partnered with him to help fund and build the platform. David’s professional background was wide-ranging, including serving as CEO for his family’s longtime construction and real estate business, serving on the board of over 70 companies worldwide, and involvement with politics and ministries.
In 2015, Goodbid launched in the United States, working to expand their partnerships with some of the biggest non-profit organizations and ministries in the world—giving users more great causes to support.
