New financing round with PropTech investor
Duschkraft GmbH in steady growth
Duschkraft GmbH from Rostock is stepping on the gas: despite the Corona crisis, the DUSCHKRAFT Home continues to assert itself as an innovative product. The Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft is therefore significantly expanding its involvement. In addition, High Rise Ventures GmbH, a PropTech investor, comes on board. The financing effect amounts to more than one million euros.
Duschkraft GmbH is heading powerfully into the summer of 2021. As one of the existing investors, Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft is significantly expanding its commitment. With High Rise Ventures GmbH, an additional investor from Berlin is supporting the company. High Rise Ventures invests specifically in "proptech" start-ups and supports Duschkraft GmbH with its large network as well as its comprehensive know-how about the industry. The Rostock-based company now has more than one million euros of additional capital at its disposal for further expansion.
"Despite problems caused by Corona, we were able to further promote the DUSCHKRAFT Home as a new and innovative product and have now convinced more than 40 housing associations and several hundred end customers of the advantages of our product," Stefan Goletzke, Managing Director of Duschkraft GmbH, is pleased to say. "These successes also brought us to the attention of High Rise Ventures. The financing round that has now been concluded will enable us to once again significantly accelerate the successful marketing of the DUSCHKRAFT Home." In addition, a new product variant of the company will also be launched on the market as early as the end of the year. The DUSCHKRAFT Home X will be able to be integrated directly into the wall of the shower and also offers hidden storage surfaces. This new development thus combines the comfort and full functionality of DUSCHKRAFT technology with an even more minimalist design.
The DUSCHKRAFT - a success story of innovation
With InnoEnergy SE, TIHA Holding GmbH and Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft Mecklenburg-Vorpommern mbH, well-known investors are already involved in Duschkraft GmbH. In the past, they have already provided around 1 million euros in capital for the market launch.
Duschkraft GmbH was founded in March 2017, and the first marketable product, DUSCHKRAFT Home, followed in 2018. Duschkraft GmbH's successes include the Founder's Prize of the Ostsee-Zeitung and winning the renowned NEUMACHER Founder's Prize of WirtschaftsWoche in the category "Industry & Technology". In addition, TV appearances in "einfach genial" on MDR and the finale of "Das Ding des Jahres" on ProSieben ensured nationwide recognition. In spring 2019, the start-up also presented itself at the ISH, the world's leading trade fair for sanitary, heating and air-conditioning technology. The DUSCHKRAFT Home is suitable for private households as well as hotels, owner-occupied homes, housing associations, holiday flats and spas.
