Hoop Carpol, the Spanish platform dedicated to vehicle sharing, has closed a round of financing on Tuesday for an amount of 1.2 million euros to, according to the company, consolidate its leadership in Spain and expand to Portugal, Mexico and Colombia.
The company has detailed through a press release that the round has been led by the impact manager Ship2B Ventures through the BSocial Impact Fund, supported by Banco Sabadell, FEI and Axis, as well as by 4Founders Capital, Lanai Partners and 'business angels' like Juan José Mostazo and Carles Florensa.
The platform, which connects drivers and passengers who share similar routes to offer an efficient and sustainable solution, has facilitated more than 60,000 trips in its existence that would have saved 220 tons of CO2 emissions and accumulates 1.6 million kilometers shared by its users.
