Jeremie Openfund II announces its investment #7: Discoveroom, founded by Nikos Anagnostou, received a €110k investment round, led by Openfund.
Discoveroom will create a marketplace for small lodgings, where travellers will be able to search, compare and book nice and affordable accommodation in a variety of geographies.
It aspires to solve both the reservations and bookings management issues for small lodgings’ owners, as well as the travellers’ inconveniences that old-type offline reservations entail.
A key component of the solution is a free mobile app facilitating reservation management for lodgings owners. The company intends to address the largely blurred space in between the offerings of the likes of booking.com and airbnb.
The service is expected to launch in December 2013 in a few local destinations, and then expand its supply and geographical coverage.
