The European online printing market is growing and will continue to win significant market share from offline competitors in the years to come. Rotterdam-based Helloprint is a key player in the industry and one of Europe’s fastest growing online platforms, offering more than 2,000 products via its network of over 100 international printers. To increasingly benefit from the positive market development, Helloprint has entered into a long-term partnership with Bregal Unternehmerkapital and Project A, the Berlin-based venture capital investor, who are investing several million euros to acquire a minority stake in Helloprint via their holding Onlineprinters.
This investment will provide Helloprint with additional financial and strategic resources to continue accelerating its growth and to expand its platform business more rapidly. Currently, Helloprint provides printed products to more than 150,000 customers in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, the UK, Spain, Germany and Ireland.
Helloprint will use the injection of capital to enhance its IT systems, grow its team and implement new customer acquisition efforts. Thanks to the company’s service-oriented platform model, Helloprint is able to grow without major capex investments. The new funding follows a seed financing round providing start-up capital and several million euros in series A financing by private investors.
Bregal is excited to have found another strong partner in a very promising market and is looking forward to actively supporting Helloprint in its growth ambitions.
