Box at Work GmbH, a Berlin, Germany-based storage startup, raised €5.5m in series A funding.
The company will use the capital to expand their operations overseas, into France immediately, the Netherlands in the near future and the US.
In order to support the US expansion, an unnamed Dutch family-owned business, specializing in international real estate, participated in the funding and will act as a strategic partner for Box at Work.
Launched in January 2015 by Gerrit Jan Reinders, Box at Work specializes in the storage and rental of moving boxes by picking everything up, store it in a warehouse, and deliver it back whenever customers want.
The service is currently live across Germany, in Berlin, Hamburg, Munster, Osnabruck, Stuttgart, Dortmund, Bochum, Essen and Swiss cities such as Zürich and Zug.
To contribute to the environment and reduce CO2 footprint, the company works by renting out, sharing and recycling reusable boxes.
