Blacklane, a Berlin, Germany-based global chauffeur service portal, closed a double-digit million Euro funding round.
Backers included current investors RI Digital Ventures, ALSTIN- Alternative Strategic Investment, b-to-v Partners and car4you Holding, and new investor Daimler Mobility Services GmbH.
The company intends to use the funds to expand the reach of its platform.
Co-founded by managing director Jens Wohltorf, Blacklane offers a innovative booking platform for high-end chauffeur services, via website or smartphone app. It aggregates the spare capacities of local partners by partnering only with selected and trained chauffeurs with premium vehicles.
Services include both classical transfers and hourly bookings for customers with several consecutive meetings or stopovers.
They are now available in 130 cities and 45 countries worldwide, including New York, Paris, and Hong Kong.
The company currently employs more than 70 employees.
