Rocket Internet’s marketplace for on-demand cleaning, Helpling, raises $17 million

I’ve barely published my interview with cleaner marketplace CEO Alex Depledge, and out comes Rocket Internet-backed Homejoy clone Helpling with a news announcement.

The Berlin-based venture, which like the two aforementioned companies provides an online platform for on-demand cleaning and other household services, has raised $17 million (roughly 13.5 million euros) in Series A funding from Mangrove Capital Partners, Phenomen Ventures, Point Nine Capital and German entrepreneur/investor Lukasz Gadowski.

The investment comes as Helpling tries to expand at furious pace, true to its parent Rocket Internet’s MO: the service is now available in more than 150 cities in 8 countries across Europe and Latin America.

For your information: Helpling first launched in Berlin a mere 8 months ago.
