I have been waiting a long time for the step we are now taking!

“Admittedly Dispurse is a small player in a big world and only survives today on the return we manage to obtain from the capital invested in the foundation. But if you are small, then you have scope to think differently.”

Gert Johansson
Founder and member of the board (chairman of the board 1993-2016)

Successful entrepreneur with the whole world as a market. After several years within the clothing industry Gert developed a system of size labelling for his own store in Sweden. The idea was to help customers to find the right size without needing to read the labels in the garments. The company Mark Bric was established in 1971 and is now a world leader within its segment. It is at the bidding of Gert that Dispurse has developed the Focus education application and Gert is, and has been, the driving force behind the development work.
