Today in Germany: Eversports, Project A


Eversports raises €800,000

Vienna-based (yes, not really Germany but close enough) Eversports is a platform where customers can book sport activities. After raising a million last October, it now raises €800,000 from Dutch business angel Marcel Beemsterboer and existing investors Point Nine Capital, as well as RTAventures VC, 6Wunderkinder-Gründer Christian Reber and Salonmeister-founder Louis Pfitzner. The investment will be used to expand.
