Evernest raises over EUR 13 million in Series-A financing round
Evernest, a Hamburg-based property company, has raised EUR 13 million in a Series A financing round, a press release said Tuesday (January 11, 2022). Founded in late 2019, the start-up will now put the capital towards growth in Germany and to push ahead with its international expansion. The round was led by Prudence in New York City who were joined by the Madrid-based Kibo Ventures and Bonsai Partners alongside existing investors Project A and APIC.
The start-up will put towards the fresh capital towards expanding the technology platform, to open more branches and to lay the foundation for pan-European expansion this year. "We are extremely pleased to welcome such experienced international investors to the Evernest family," said Christian Evers, CEO of Evernest. "The new capital will enable us to expand our technology platform while rapidly entering new markets in Germany and throughout Europe."
Digital platform for property transactions
Evernest has developed a technology, data-driven end-to-end platform to improve the transaction process for buyers, sellers and agents. This allows all those involved to work closely together and eases the analysis of data while streaming digital processes. Evernest employs over 100 staff across its brokerage platform, in the intelligent marketing division, in its own academy and in support teams in Hamburg and Berlin. Evernest closed its seed financing round with a EUR 6 million in March 2021.
Evernest was founded in November 2019 by former Engel & Völkers board member Christian Evers and Luisa Haxel, who was responsible for digital strategy at Engel & Völkers. Stefan Betzold, former Digital Managing Director at Axel Springer, came on board in early 2021 as the third member of the management board responsible for product and technology. Evernest now employs over 100 staff.
