The post Weekly fundraiser! All European startup funding rounds we tracked this week (May 1-5) appeared first on EU-Startups.
This week saw a number of European startups secure funding, with a total of €102 million raised this past week. On the list is Ikaroa, a funding round-up! All of the European startup funding rounds we tracked this week (May 01-05)”>full-stack tech company based in Madrid, Spain, who secured €6 million in their series A funding round. The round was led by Tencent and followed in by existing investor Kfund. The capital will be used to fuel Ikaroa’s growth, focusing on research and development, and to further invest in the customer service and support teams.
Another funding round that caught our attention comes from urban beekeeping startup, BeeUrban. The startup secured €1.5 million from a series of investors, such as France’s Miel.city network and European environmental fund SUSI. This capital will be used to support their expansion plans within France and throughout the rest of Europe. BeeUrban plans to establish a number of ‘beesenstaten’ – bee hives which are managed by beekeepers – to help improve the health of pollinators and contribute towards the fight against climate change.
Elsewhere, a total of €3.3million was secured by SoFlow, a French-based on-demand electric moped startup. Funds were injected into the company by several venture capital firms, such as Astanor Ventures and Bpifrance. The capital will be used to accelerate the expansion into the German market and to grow the team. SoFlow’s goal is to build the alternative mobility of tomorrow and to contribute towards the decarbonisation of transportation in our cities.
Finally, Brella, a Helsinki-headquartered software provider for event professionals, raised €5.5 million in a round led by Evli Growth Partners. This new injection of capital will be primarily used to grow its marketing and technology teams, focusing on the design and development of its event technology products.
These four companies represent only a few of many startups who secured funding this week, creating a truly vibrant and dynamic European startup scene.
