Depop was founded by Simon Beckerman in 2011 as a social network where readers of PIG magazine could buy items from the young creatives featured in the magazine. After realising that Depop needed a selling function, Simon re-envisioned the app as a marketplace and a mobile space where you can see what your friends and the people you’re inspired by are liking, buying and selling.
Today, Depop is a place where millions of users come to celebrate their style and discover culture. The company is headquartered in London, with offices in New York and Manchester. Depop is powered by a team of around 400 people, dedicated to our mission of fashion for a better future.
In 2021, Depop became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Etsy - the global marketplace for unique and creative goods - and continues to operate as a standalone company.
