Sometimes you just want to close the curtains and have a cinematic film night, projector included. Or a weekend full of PS5 gaming excess. But that doesn’t mean you need to drop the big bucks on big-ticket tech.
To this end, Warsaw-based on-demand tech rental platform Plenti has raised $1.5 million in a seed round led by RST Ventures for Earth. The founders of Poland’s largest e-commerce platform, Allegro, Arjan Bakker and Grzegorz Brochocki also joined as angel investors.
“Our fund is committed to investing in sustainable technology. Plenti’s business model helps reduce electronic waste and takes that issue away from users, as they can simply subscribe and share their devices with others,” comments RST Ventures for Earth managing partner Tomasz Popów.
Founded in late 2018, Plenti offers consumers new or near-new gear including drones, PlayStation 5 consoles, VR headsets, video projectors, and robotic hoovers, to name a few, all without an all-out purchase or long-term rental.
Plenti offers 2 hours (or less) delivery within Warsaw and next day delivery throughout the rest of the country. The new round of funding is expected to offer more express delivery services in additional Polish cities.
“We believe in access over ownership. Plenti users can use their favourite gadgets whenever they want, without all the cost, responsibilities, and other hassles that come with actually owning electronic devices,” adds Plenti CEO and co-founder Wojciech Rokosz. “The constantly growing number of our users and their overall satisfaction indicate that our business model works.”
