Bootstrapped in the unicorn factory Stockholm, home to unicorns such as Skype, King, Spotify, iZettle. Tracy was critically acclaimed as one of Swedens hottest startups and partners to pet insurance companies Moderna försäkringar and Trygg, until the dog revolution went back underground 2019.
Dog owners are like most people. They are not just one thing. Sometimes they go on hikes on a mountain or go mushroom picking in the woods. And sometimes they just want to hang out in the city and eating takeaway food. Brands are like that too. They can have products that are directed at different mindsets, people and situations. For both the city and the outdoors. Many brands have this strategy, creating products both for the city and the outdoors. What they have in common is an identity that is neither the most outdoorsy nor the most urban. Instead it's a perfect balance between the two worlds: outdoor products with a touch of street and urban products with a touch of the functionality and performance required for the outdoors.
This strategy was the new direction for the Second Generation Tracy - named Tracy 2.
