European investment firm eVenture Capital Partners also participated.
Terms of the deal aren’t being disclosed although 9flats says this brings its total funding to $10m just six months after the startup was founded. The new round will be used to expand 9flats’ management team and service across Europe as it aims to become a “global player” in the online travel industry.
Launched this February, 9flats lists over 8,000 private accommodations in 40 countries, ranging from a place on a couch for €15 a night to a luxury apartment for €500.
The company is based in Berlin, Hamburg and Valencia and currently employs 100 employees.
