We’re extra proud to announce that our parent company Blingdale surpassed their planned new share issue of 30 million SEK with a total closed capital of 43 million SEK.
The capital comes at a perfect time. We’re more confident than ever in our product and are beginning to make an impact in Sweden. Our next step is expansion into new markets. We will be putting the new capital into good use to boost our expansion, develop our platform and keep on hiring the best talents.
Jakob Carlbring, CEO Quiddly
Great interest from existing and new investors
35 million comes from current investors, and the remaining 8 million from new investors. The funding will be distributed among the subsidiaries. At Quiddly, we will use the capital for product development, scaling our business and making it ready for international expansion.
We received a great interest and in just 2 months we secured 43 million. The investors are an interesting mix of IT billionaires, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists. We’re glad that current investors are showing further interest, and that new ones have found their way to Blingdale.
