JustBook, a mobile app that allows you to book hotel nights at a heavily reduced rate, secured their first angel round, coming from a diverse group of german business angels. Among the group are Ferry and Fabian Heilemann, the brothers who co-founded Dailydeal and sold it to Google in 2011, Amiando founder Felix Haas, Torsten Oelke, Matthias Hunecke, Steffen Zoller and Manuel Nothelfer.
This is an unusually large angel round, yet financial terms of the investment have not been disclosed. The company was publically launched in early January 2012 and this is its first funding round.
The app is free of charge and wants to serve travellers who are in spontaneous need of hotel rooms, such as people who’ve missed their plane. The company has been founded by Stefan Menden, Florian Waldmann, Ogi Zeric and Sebastian Fallert, whereas Menden previously founded german career network squeaker.net and the European Piratesummit.
