deskbird raises $5 million to accelerate growth across Europe

ST. GALLEN, Switzerland - Sept. 9, 2022 - PRLog -- deskbird, a Swiss-based tech company on its way to becoming Europe's leading workplace management platform, announced the closing of a $5 million Pre-Series A financing round. The new funding brings deskbird's total funding to $6.5 million since its foundation, making it the most funded European SaaS startup for workplace management.

Investors Fortyone and Rivus Capital as well as existing investor led the round, demonstrating a strong trust in deskbird's management team and its ambition to become Europe's leading workplace solution. The investment follows deskbird's outstanding performance since inception, achieving a total contract volume (TCV) of $2m just one year after product launch (+50% monthly growth).

The capital will turbocharge deskbird's growth across European markets and allow the startup to expand its product offering to meet additional needs of their enterprise and mid-market customers. With its workplace app, deskbird already helps to manage over 500 offices across 20 countries, from customers such as Schaeffler, Heineken, KFC, Knauf, Volksbank, and more. Deskbird plans to at least double their team to over 100 people until the end of next year.

With its unique approach to workplace management, deskbird offers the first workplace software built around users and not buildings. This results in an unrivaled, mobile-first user experience and a product that helps both avoid workplace chaos and improve in-person collaboration in the office. Employees can do more than just book resources in the office, as they can see who is in the office at a glance and easily schedule in-person meetings accordingly.

‍"With deskbird, we are shaping the new way of working and helping companies to create better flexible workplaces. We are excited to have our existing investor further backing us in the current round and new, experienced investors Fortyone and Rivus Capital joining our journey.  With the additional capital, we will not only boost  our growth to become Europe's category-leading workplace solution, but also expand our platform around the workplace needs of our target customers."
Ivan Cossu, co-founder and CEO of deskbird

"We are grateful for the exceptionally  close collaboration with our clients, which allowed us to build a B2B product that is loved by both employees and managers. Thanks to this financing round, we will further push user engagement, functionality and integrations in existing workflows. As we are growing to over 100 people in the near future, one big challenge will be to find the very best talent in line with our culture."
Jonas Hess, co-founder and CPO of deskbird
