News from Point Nine Capital – February 2015
Hi <<First Name>>,

As you probably know, unicorns are rarely spotted in the wild. But If you paid close attention to our twitter feed in the last few weeks, you could see that mini unicorns were popping up everywhere: New York, Paris, Silicon Valley, Berlin and even halfway across the world in Auckland! The one traveling up to Scotland apparently has enjoyed one Scotch too many on the way, but hey – to each (unicorn) his own!

Too much fluffy unicorn talk? OK, then let’s get into some numbers.

  • BOOM! Berlin was shaking a little bit when Rocket Internet announced that it paid close to €500,000,000 for 30% of Delivery Hero, valuing the company north of €1,600,000,000. That’s 1.6 unicorns, next level: Decacorn.
  • Just a few months after announcing its Series A, Humanity (formerly ShiftPlanning) secured a $9,000,000 Series B to fuel the growth of its Cloud-based workforce management platform. If you're still using spreadsheets or pen & paper to manage your company, it’s time for an upgrade!
  • Xeneta, the largest sea-freight benchmarking platform, has raised $5,300,000 to bring transparency to even more shipping routes across the world. Did we mention that they are attacking a $150,000,000,000+ market before?
  • An impressive milestone was reached by StyleSeat: Over $1,000,000,000 in bookings have been made and a whopping 16,000,000 appointments were booked since launch. That’s a lot of haircuts indeed.
  • After launching its mobile app retargeting solution only three months ago, Remerge has already served 1,000,000,000,000 ads for customers like Spotify, Lovoo and HRS. Not a bad start at all!
  • And Kitchen Stories is another youngster with big numbers. After just one year in the App Store, over 4,000,000 food lovers have downloaded the app on iOS. Not too bad, especially for a marketing spend of $0.00!
  • Striving towards 0% (or even better: negative) churn? Then ChartMogul released a feature that we know you’ll love: Cohort analysis. Yes you heard read right, no more Excel fiddling, now you can just click one button and be up and running in no time. Give it a try!
And that’s all, dear subscriber, we hope to see you again next month.

Till then, all the best,

Your team at Point Nine Capital
