Insovent Cookies is acquired by Klarna

The Berlin-based fintech startup Cookies, which recently filed for bankruptcy, was acquired for a “trivial” amount by the Swedish payment service Klarna. The deal itself can be considered an asset-deal or similar to an acqui-hire, which means the startup was bought for its high quality staff.

Newsenselab receives investment

The Berlin-based startup Newsenselab doesn’t stop migraines with its app, but aims to help manage them. The startup reported raising a six-digit figure from Think.Health Ventures and HTGF, first time investors, and existing investors, Flying Health and a business angel. While the android app is free for now, some of the programs may come at a cost next year.
