It didn't take long before the first six-digit figure investment came in. Now, the company announces it teams up with Design3000, an online shop for lifestyle products. Together, they become part of Geschenke.de HSY GmbH. Both brands will continue to run independently. Also, existing investor GMPVC German Media Pool and others invest a medium size seven-digit figure to push growth.
