This week has started quite well, as multiple Dutch startups successfully closed their funding rounds and launched public investment campaigns. The shipping platform SendCloud, the sales and marketing platform Hotelchamp and the AppScooter developer Bolt Mobility will be the subjects in this week’s funding overview.
The collaborative platform Elium, which enables knowledge-based organisations to digitize their knowledge sharing among employees, has raised 4 million euros during their series A funding round from Serena Capital and S.R.I.W.. The company aims to become the leader in the new “Knowledge Sharing Platforms” market, which is a new category of Enterprise Social Networks.
It is a good day for truck drivers, as startup Synple lands an investment of 1.1 million euros by Newion and Mainport Innovation Fund II. Using Synple’s software and platform, transporters can easily manage freight which would otherwise lead to multiple drives for a transporter. This way, profit is increased, CO2 emissions are decreased and so called “empty kilometers” are avoided.
