Zoofy has raised growth capital for its expansion into Germany
Zoofy, an Amsterdam-based platform connecting professional handymen with consumers and businesses, has raised growth capital from a private investor for its expansion into Germany. The company expects to launch its German platform in the second quarter of this year.
Zoofy was founded in 2015 and has over 35 employees. Its network of handymen in the Netherlands encompasses more than 6,000 professionals, including plumbers, electricians, carpenters, painters, gardeners, general handymen and appliance repairmen. In addition to offering services directly through its own platform, Zoofy also has partnerships with Dutch hardware stores and webshops such as Bol.com, Hornbach, Gamma, Praxis and Karwei.
The new private investor has extensive experience as an entrepreneur in Germany and will join a shareholder base that includes leading venture capitalists Axivate Capital and Momentum Capital.
Oaklins’ team in the Netherlands acted as fundraising advisor to Zoofy and its shareholders.
