Evaneos raises USD6m through XAnge and ISAI
Evaneos, an online specialist for tailored travel, has closed a financing round of USD6m through XAnge Private Equity and founding investor ISAI.
The investment will be dedicated to the European growth of the French start-up, already established in France, Spain, Italy and Germany.
Doubling its volume of sales each year, Evaneos hopes to continue this significant growth and triple its workforce in the coming years.
Eric La Bonnardière, CEO of Evaneos.com, says: "XAnge's interest for Evaneos.com demonstrates the validity of the concept and business model we invented four years ago, along with the international growth perspectives that we wish to accentuate. If our philosophy remains unchanged since our inception, we now have more resources to develop it: built on our passion for travelling and our technologic expertise to invent tomorrow's travels. Our travelers' community expects us to keep thinking differently and innovate."
Yvan Wibaux, co-founder and chief technology officer of Evaneos.com, adds: "This new step in our development will enable us to expand our technical team in order to launch the tools and features which will allow tomorrow's travellers to take as much pleasure planning their trip than living it, and help agents to work more effectively."
