PropTech startup Seniovo receives further funding of 2 million euros

2. August 2019

Berlin — Prop­T­ech startup Seniovo is now raising a further €2 million in Series A growth capi­tal following its seed round in Octo­ber 2018. PropTech1 Ventures and IBB Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft are lead inves­tors. Seniovo accom­pa­nies persons in need of care along the entire process of age-appro­­priate and barrier-free conver­sion measu­res of their apart­ments or houses.

Due to the posi­tive momen­tum — for example, Seniovo achie­ved sales growth of over 250% (Q1 2018 to Q1 2019) — all exis­ting lead inves­tors of the seed round, i.e. the venture capi­tal fund PropTech1 Ventures, which specia­li­zes in inno­va­tions in the real estate indus­try, IBB Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft and the German Media Pool with its print media part­ners, are parti­ci­pa­ting again. New inves­tors in the round include other real estate entre­pre­neurs with rele­vant care expertise.

The issue of demo­gra­phic change in society and the corre­spon­ding incre­ase in the need for care is one of the key social chal­len­ges of our time. Today, 18 million inha­bi­tants of Germany are already 65 years and older. 3 million people in this coun­try are in need of care. By 2060, seni­ors will make up one-third of Germany’s popu­la­tion. Seniovo’s goal is to enable a steadily incre­a­sing propor­tion of people in need of care to remain in their own homes.

As a one-stop contact, the Berlin Prop­T­ech startup offers target-group-speci­­fic advice on its online plat­form www.seniovo.de and digi­ti­zes the entire appli­ca­tion and imple­men­ta­tion process, inclu­ding the imple­men­ta­tion of the measu­res on site with its own craft­s­men or the media­tion of certi­fied part­ners. In many cases, persons in need of care do not have to make any addi­tio­nal payment of private funds in this regard. For example, Seniovo’s success rate in submit­ting grant appli­ca­ti­ons for those in need of long-term care is 95%. Seniovo has already been able to help more than 500 people success­fully rebuild their homes.

Anja Rath (photo), Mana­ging Part­ner of PropTech1 Ventures, comments on the rene­wed invest­ment decision: “Seniovo is one of the very few star­tups that promi­ses both an econo­mic and a social return. We are plea­sed to once again contri­bute to its further deve­lo­p­ment with a strong syndi­cate of co-investors.”

Jona­than Kohl, CEO & Foun­der of Seniovo, adds: “With the freshly raised growth capi­tal, we want to open up further regi­ons as well as launch new products. Most import­antly, further digi­tiz­a­tion of proces­ses and expan­sion of our B2B busi­ness will also further incre­ase both growth and efficiency.”
