Congratulations to Ägräs Distillery and Heliozenit for successful funding rounds! Ägräs Distillery reached oversubscription with €380,000 raised, making this second Ägräs offering on Invesdor even more popular than the first. Heliozenit’s €100,000 round was the first VC co-operation round for us with investments from Åland-based VC ÅUAB.
Cases closing today include Transfluent, Investors House and Netpris! All three are closing at a minute to midnight today. As a highlight, Transfluent’s offering has more than €700k invested and also includes investments on the same terms from a Finnish VC fund, Vision+.
The first newcomer of the week is Injeq, makers of a smart needle that makes lumbar punctures significantly safer especially for small children. The second new case is ShowHau Center, which focuses on the wellbeing of dogs and dog owners. The ShowHau offering includes a €200,000 investment from the Finnish Media For Equity fund, which secures the company a big marketing boost following the funding round.
