Shareit.global Oy, the startup behind peer-to-peer car rental service Blox Car, is crowdfunding on FundedByMe. The rapidly growing company based in Helsinki, Finland, will use the financing round to expand into other European markets and spread awareness of its unique service.
Blox Car’s P2P car-sharing service enables private vehicle owners to make money on their cars and for registered users to borrow an affordable car whenever they need. The online platform provides an easy and safe way to let and borrow a car. The Helsinki startup takes pride in its service’s robust security and ensures that owners have trust in the service. Together with the insurance company If, the award-winning mobility startup has created a tailored insurance cover especially for peer-to-peer rentals. In the service trust between users is built through the registration process, using the service and getting feedback and reviews from other users.
Blox Car has 10,000 registered users and over 600 cars listed in the service, out of which 150 are continuously available. Blox Car was awarded as ‘Best Mobile Service Supporting Sustainable Development in Finland 2018’ at Slush and we have been named one of ‘The most interesting companies in the circular economy in Finland’ by The Finnish Innovation Fund, Sitra.
The goal of the newly opened crowdfunding is to raise 500,000–1,000,000 euros for technical development and to support internationalisation. According to serial entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Blox Car Paul Nyberg, “This is a unique opportunity to own a part of the sustainable development of transport. Blox Car is a meaningful growth company from an investing point of view also because you can try how effortless and economically sensible peer-to-peer renting is by trying the service.”
Blox Car has also gained its first angel investors, among whom the most well-known is Mikko Silventola, who’s previously invested in Bolt (prev. Taxify). The estimated value of Bolt is €1B and Silventola has a good sense of new fast growing transport services.
You can become an owner of Blox Car with a minimum investment of €500, or you can invest a larger sum if you’re hungry for more. The investing is done through the crowdfunding platform FundedByMe: https://www.fundedbyme.com/sv/campaign/8462/shareit-global-oy/?type=e
