Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westfalia (Germany), April 2nd, 2020

Welcome Relapine. vivenu has secured €1.45 million in Series Seed funding. The financing round, completed in March 2020, was led by Zurich-based venture capital firm Redalpine, with other angels participating. Redalpine was one of the early investors in fintech unicorn N26 and leading tax-reimbursement platform Taxfix.

Looking to put an end to inefficient processes, vivenu developed the tech-leading ticketing solution to empower organizers to work more independently and break existing limitations. GE32 Capital and Hansel LLC formed around the serial entrepreneurs Florian Hagenbuch and Mate Pencz (Printi and Loft) join the company as Business Angeles.

“The world of ticketing is more than just broken", reported Carlo Egle, Investment Manager at Redalpine. "Today, event organizers are stuck with solutions that heavily depend on manual processes, causing high costs, dependencies, and frustration on various levels. Now more than ever, event organizers across all verticals have no choice but to digitize internal processes and improve their margins. vivenu is the only scalable solution with the potential to cater to every kind of event organizer, from the local knitting course to top league football clubs. We are extremely proud to be part of the journey, partnering up with a team that is young but truly dedicated to their mission.“
