Helpling Secures €10M in Additional Funding

helplingHelpling, a Berlin, Germany-based marketplace for booking household services online, raised €10m in funding.

The round was led by APACIG, with participation from existing investors (which include Rocket Internet, Mangrove Capital, Lakestar, and Accel).

The company, which has collectively raised a total of €67M since launching in early 2014, intends to use the funds to expand its marketplace to include additional household services.

Founded in early 2014 by Benedikt Franke and Philip Huffmann, Helpling provides an online and mobile marketplace for customers to book a vetted and insured household service provider. In January 2017, the company launched additional services across 20 cities in Germany, its largest market in order to strengthen its position.
The range of new services includes window cleaning, furniture assembling and paint work, among others.

Helpling currently offers its services in Australia, Germany, Italy, France, Ireland (, UK (, UAE, the Netherlands and Singapore.
