Overfunding and still campaigning….The German crowdfunding platform Companisto has four concurrent campaigns overfunding: Mineko, Cringle, eatclever, and poqit.berlin.
Many readers may be familiar with the long and windy road involved when utility bills prove incorrect when outrageous sums are supposedly owed. But what happens when the mistakes are not enormous? Mineko, short for Mietnebenkosten, the German term for utilities, helps tenants keep track of their utility costs. Co-founded by Daniel Schlör and Chris Möller, the startup launched its campaign in April with immediate success from the crowd. To date the Mineko has secured over 207,365€ from over 495 investors, overfunding by 207%. Since 2014, Mineko has reportedly checked over 4,500 utility bills for tenants and has noticed that 9 out of 10 bills are incorrect. Consequently, tenants in Germany pay a total of €5 billion in excess of the actual utility costs each year. Mineko helps clients get this money back. 24 days remain on Mineko’s Companisto campaign.
And when the money is returned, investors can tuck their euros into their chic poqit.berlin wallet. No more empty batteries – the team of poqit.berlin, who were awarded the EXIST start-up grant- has developed a smart wallet that uses the newest wireless charging technology. Its first product poqit is touted as impossible to lose and elegantly design. Owners can simply charge their smartphones by placing it on the wallet. Over 348 investors have signed their support for this concept and raised over 116,120€, overfunding by 116%. With a campaign ending on 10 September, there’s plenty of time left for poqit.berlin to reach its ultimate 200K€ funding goal.
Co-founded by Joschka Friedag, Malte Klussmann, Konrad Maruszewski and Frane Bandov, Cringle, 218% overfunding, is a smartphone app used to send money within seconds to friends all over Europe. By cooperating with the user’s principal bank, the app guarantees one’s bank’s normal high security standards. Cringle counts the Deutsche Kreditbank AG (DKB) as a partner. Over 572 investors have backed this latest fintech app, investing over 218,864€ in the campaign.
Lastly, eatclever has raised over 186,835€ to date from over 470 investors, overfunding by 186%. Valued at just over 3M€, eatclever develops tasty dishes in cooperation with nutrition experts, which are then freshly prepared in partner restaurants in 12 German towns and then delivered directly to the customers. With more than 15,000 satisfied customers, eatclever reportedly has established its position in the sector and hopes to accelerate its Germany-wide expansion with the help of its equity-based crowdfunding round on Companisto. Cofounded by Mohamed Chanin, Robin Himmels and Marco Langhoff, the healthy food delivery startup aims to hit its 300,000€ by 27 August, in a funding round that may be extended.
