JustBook, the app for spontaneous hotel bookings at discounted prices has continued to win support from well-known investors. The circle of investors reads like a who’s who of the German internet scene. Led by Paua Ventures and RI Digital Ventures, others who are on board include Jan Becker, Founder of be2, Martin Sinner, Founder of idealo.de, as well as the mobile business incubator, Venista Ventures and Venture Stars.
Stefan Menden, Founder and CEO of JustBook, is excited about the high level of attention presented in this Round. “It’s a good sign that our concept attracts so many successful investors and founders of the Startup scene. In addition to the capital, the potential of the know-how and experience that these experts bring is not to be underestimated”.
Previously, JustBook had already convinced, among others, Felix Haas, the amiando founders, Fabian and Ferry Heilemann of Daily Deal, Nils Henning from Bigpoint and Matthias Hunecke of Brille24. Jochen Gutbrod, Founder of RI Digital Ventures and former CFO of the Holtzbrinck Group, explains his involvement as follows: “JustBook is a driver of innovation in the industry. The manner and style in which hotel rooms were previously found were by all means characterized by conventional methods. With JustBook, I can search and book a room within half a minute. It’s that easy. This is the future of mobile Internet”.
Martin Sinner also adds that “the expansion is only logical and we want to shape this growth. JustBook is one of the most successful apps on the German market and we will continuously offer more hotels in other European countries in order to build on this success”.
Venista Ventures brings to the table, in addition to financial support, the commitment of its network in order to support JustBook on its growth path. Kai Schmude, COO of Venista Ventures, highlights how “JustBook is extremely well positioned to achieve spectacular results in the dynamically growing market of last-minute bookings. Their highly motivated and experienced team, the wide network of partners and investors, as well as the impressive performance in the last few months have solidified JustBook’s prospect of a successful future.
