Thermondo raises €6 million, Rocket invests in Take Eat Easy.
Rocket Internet and Holtzbrinck Ventures invest in Thermondo
Berlin-based Thermondo sells heaters via its online platform, letting local companies or a Thermondo team take care of the installation. Having started in October 2012, Thermondo claims to have the largest digital heating product database. Apart from that, the startup also developed a software that displays every step in the installation process. Through that, Thermondo says, it can manage all procedures, starting with the order of a costumer to organising a team for the installation.
While Rocket Internet and Holtzbrinck Venture are joining as new investors, the already existing ones, Grey Crop, IBB Beteiligungsgesellschaft, and the power company E.ON also joined the €6 million Series B round.
Thermondo was founded by Philipp Pausder, Kristofer Fichtner and Florian Tetzlaff and currently employs 70 people. It plans on growing to 140 employees by the end of the year, focussing on heating engineers and developers.
