Juniqe, a Berlin, Germany-based marketplace for affordable art, raised €5m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Vorwerk Ventures, with participation from Redalpine, High-Tech Gründerfonds and CEWE.
The company intends to use the funds to add a French version of their website to strengthen their presence in France, Belgium and parts of Switzerland and expant its existing staff, growing to at least 55 employees in 2015.
Led by Marc Pohl, Lea Lange, Sebastian Hasebrink, Juniqe allows diverse independent artists from around the world to find an audience to purchase their work at affordable prices.
It now boasts more than 400 international contemporary artists and 9,000 artworks.
