Raue comprehensively advised proptech start-up Tiko Real Estate Technologies (“Tiko”) on its US$65 million Series A financing round. The financing round was led by the digital tech fund and private investor network of btov Partners. Tiko’s shareholder base includes other well-known venture capital investors such as Rocket Internet and business angels. The equity financing round was accompanied by a debt investor.
Tiko’s innovative tech platform allows any homeowner to sell their house in a few days. This is done using a data-driven valuation algorithm. The financing round ensures Tiko’s continued rapid growth. The capital raised will be used to further strengthen Tiko’s data-driven valuation algorithm and to continue the international expansion beyond its home market of Spain.
Raue advised Tiko on all German law aspects of the financing round especially on all corporate issues.
