Online print platform Helloprint has received a “multi-million” euro minority investment from Bregal Unternehmerkapital, the investment firm of the family business that owns Dutch retail chain C&A, and VC firm Project A.
The company declined to disclose any figures.
The new funding will support the Helloprint’s ongoing growth, said the Rotterdam-based startup. According to Hans Scheffer, Helloprint founder, the company will be able to scale and enter new markets quickly. Helloprint also raised €3 million last year.
“Our network of international print and promo producers is growing fast and it is our ambitions to scale the network and our business even faster over the next years. The whole team is looking forward to accelerate our growth further with the new partnership,” he said.
It was a long process in deciding to partner with Bregal and Project A, added the founder.
“The family-owned structure, long term vision and hands-on mentality of Bregal and the operational power in data, BI, CRM and online acquisition marketing of Project A have convinced us to go for a joint future,” he said. “This unique combination allows us to grow our independent platform faster into various markets.”
