Berlin — Raue has compre­hen­si­vely advi­sed German air cab company Volo­c­op­ter on a Series E finan­cing round worth €153 million. Volo­c­op­ter plans to use the new capi­tal to acce­le­rate certi­fi­ca­tion of the elec­tric passen­ger air cab and its launch in initial cities.

The first signing of the Series E finan­cing round was led by new South Korean inves­tor WP Invest­ment. In addi­tion, Honey­well also parti­ci­pa­ted for the first time. Many exis­ting inves­tors, inclu­ding Atlan­tia, Whysol and btov Part­ners, also re-inves­­ted in this finan­cing round. Even before the latest round of finan­cing, the company had surpas­sed the magic unicorn mark for start­ups with a valua­tion of around EUR 1.5 billion.

Raue advi­sed Volo­c­op­ter, as in the previous finan­cing rounds, in a lead role and compre­hen­si­vely on the Series E finan­cing, in parti­cu­lar on the corpo­rate, avia­tion, foreign trade and regu­la­tory aspects of the project.
