Backing Minds satsar på husdjur

Dec 12, 2018

Riskkapitalbolaget Backing Minds och medgrundaren av Serendipity, Saeid Esmaeilzadeh, investerar i svenska husdjursbolaget i Denjo Dogs. Öka textstorlek Denjo Dogs är ett livsstilsvarumärke för husdjurprodukter. Nu tar de ni 2,6 miljoner kronor i kapital från riskkapitalbolaget Backing Minds och serieentreprenören Saeid Esmaeilzadeh, en av grundarna till Serendipity. Backing Minds blir därmed den största externa ägaren av husdjursbolaget. Medlen ska gå till ett breddat sortiment och fortsatt expansion. ”Det är en väldigt snabbväxande marknad och vi såg att det fanns ett gap. Om man jämför med många andra kategorier inom e-handeln så kommer det här vara en av de mest snabbväxande. Det finns inte så många alternativ på marknaden och det blir samtidigt fler husdjursägare i världen. Så det är en jättespännande marknad”, säger Susanne Najafi, medgrundare BackingMinds.
