March 27, 2015
Helpling, the provider of an online marketplace for booking home cleaning services, has raised €43 million in new funding from investors including Lakestar, Kite Ventures, Rocket Internet and Lukasz Gadowski. Combined with its Series A (raised in December), Helpling has about €57 million in total funding. The company will reportedly use the new funds to expand its service in the 12 countries it operates in. Helpling has now raised more capital than another leading home cleaning platform—U.S.-based Homejoy—which has raised $40 million to date.
