Juniqe, a Berlin, Germany-based e-commerce website for affordable art, raised a seven-figure euro funding.
Investors included Redalpine, High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) and the German Startups Group.
The curated selection of eclectic images really appeals to customers, as does the option of purchasing these images as framed prints, T-shirts, smartphone cases and home accessories. The business model challenges the traditional role of art consumption by making art affordable for everyone.
The company will use the funds to invest in its online gallery, in enhancing the customer experience, in shaping the brand’s profile and in introducin new product categories and grow the team.
Co-founded in January 2014 by Lea Lange, Marc Pohl and Sebastian Hasebrink, Juniqe is an e-commerce site that specializes in art prints, apparel and accessories. The company already ships to 12 countries.
It is hiring.
