Berlin — Berlin-based startup Home­bell recei­ves new capi­tal tota­ling around €11 million in a Series B finan­cing round. The new inves­tors include (among others) insurance compa­nies AXA and Helve­tia as well as Seven­Ven­tures, the finan­cial inves­tor of the ProSiebenSat1 media group. Part of the finan­cing amount flows into TV adver­ti­sing time provi­ded by the ProSiebenSat1 Group. Home­bell was foun­ded in Berlin in Septem­ber 2015.

The company offers online place­ment of handy­man services such as pain­ting or electri­cal work. Home­bell was already able to collect milli­ons of euros in invest­ments at the start. The inves­tors at the time inclu­ded Index Ventures, the invest­ment company Lakestar and the Rocket Inter­net fund Rocket Inter­net Capi­tal Part­ners.

With the new money, the plat­form intends to further expand its presence in Germany and the Nether­lands and grow by adding new product cate­go­ries. In the future, for example, the website will also offer custo­mers inspi­ra­tion and ideas for renovation.
