Czech digital caravan rental platform Campers has raised an additional € 2.7 million to complement the almost € 2 million it acquired in the recently completed initial investment cycle. To date, the startup has raised 4.64 million euros, which will be used to establish Campiri in new markets, strengthen its teams and purchase new vehicles. The company also plans to expand to three more Central European countries.
The investment was led by Rockaway Ventures and I saw the involvement of Miton and Purple Ventures. Founded by Lukasz Januszek and Paul Tesar, the platform aims to digitize caravanning in the Czech Republic, Poland, Greece and Slovakia.
Chief Executive Officer Lukasz Januszek said: “The current investment gives us the opportunity to expand beyond the Czech borders. Most of the funding will support our expansion and the hiring of senior officials. Although we see great potential in Central Europe, we also see Eastern and Southern Europe as huge opportunities. “
Campiri offers more than 100 rental cars in the Czech Republic and Poland and aims to increase the supply to 1,200 vehicles in all markets in 2022.
Dušan Zabrodski, investment partner, Rockaway Capital added: “What attracted us to Campiri was the digital business model that connects car owners with those who are interested in renting them. The popularity of this form of travel is growing and has a visibly lower impact on the environment. Sustainable camping and caravanning projects are also in line with our ESG strategy, which is a key factor for us. Our investment in Campiri is a logical continuation of our recent investments in the digitalisation of car rental and sales. “
