Swiss venture capital firm Venture Incubator invests in Equippo’s second seed round to date.
Equippo’s Second Financing Round
If you follow the Equippo blog, you’ll remember that Equippo announced its first financing round with b-to-v partners in June, 2015. Fast forward half a year, and we’re happy to announce the closing of our second major funding round with Swiss firm VI Partners.
After celebrating Equippo’s first birthday on November 17th, this financing round comes at a time when the company is most primed for exponential growth. CEO Michael Rohmeder says, “we’ll use this great investment and vote of confidence to help quickly grow both our team and our reach.” And as “the Ebay of used equipment,” there’s huge growth to be accomplished in the coming months.
