Le Cicogne S.r.l., the service that allows you to find the babysitter of your choice quickly and easily, has closed investment rounds for €355,000 with some of the most important Italian investment funds and other private investors through the platform SiamoSoci.com.
Club Acceleratori led the operation, Club Deal linked to the main Italian accelerators, which multiplied the capital invested by PiCampus, Venture Capital fund and startup district that hosted the startup accelerating its growth in recent months.
The increase in new capital was also subscribed Club Italia Investimenti 2, the Club that includes 64 innovative and high performance startups, including just Le Cicogne, currently campaigning on Mamacrowd: starting from € 100 you can participate in the continued growth of the all-female project.
"The funds will be used to consolidate the market in the 83 cities in which we are active - with particular attention to the metropolises of Rome and Milan - and activate the service in a further 40 cities in Italy. Thanks to the launch of the smartphone application and the new business model, we have been able to demonstrate that there is much to innovate even in such a traditional world as babysitting, and that technology can make the experience of finding a babysitter much faster and more efficient for families," says Monica Archibugi, CEO of the company.
Le Cicogne was founded in 2013 to help families find a trusted babysitter quickly and easily, and one that ensures babysitters manage their work in a professional manner. The startup initially went through LUISS ENLABS' acceleration program and later enjoyed the support of Pi-Campus through the Pi-Internshipprogram, a period of advising and mentorship at Pi-Campus, a venture capital firm that invests in talent and the startup district. In recent months, it has shown a 20% month-on-month growth in transacted business and reached 6,000 registered babysitters and more than 3,000 families using the platform.
"Our business plan Our business plan foresees the expansion in Europe within a year" adds Giulia Gazzelloni, COO of Le Cicogne.
