We recently reported on the phenomenal growth of self-storage finder Stashbee who connect individuals and businesses with spare space to those who need it…using the same philosophy as Airbnb, a few months ago and they are now back in the news. They’ve just closed a £2.5m equity investment round from 886 investors on Seedrs, the on-line equity crowd-funding business.
The online sharing-economy platform, used for storage space, hit its initial target of £1.6m in under 24 hours, with the campaign overfunding over £900k in four weeks. They say that the second investment round on Seedrs will be used to build on the growth the company has seen in the last three years.
Stashbee saw its biggest month ever in June 2019 for on-boarding storage space, going beyond one million square feet of bookable space on the platform. This made it the sixth biggest provider in the UK. Co-founder, David Mantle, said: “June was such a remarkable month at Stashbee HQ we’ve taken to referring to it as the ‘4 Million Month’!
“We smashed record after record, and once again we were delighted to welcome so many customers and champions of our business as both customers and shareholders as we build the #1 global destination for storage.
Stashbee currently offer parking spaces, lock up storage, use of peoples attics and basements and office space etc.
